People throughout Georgia are getting ready to test their luck.
The Powerball Jackpot drawing is tonight and the prize is $360 million, making it the third largest Powerball Jackpot of all time.
After Powerball ticket prices doubled last year, and more states began participating, the jackpots have been exponentially growing.
It has rolled over nearly a dozen times making this drawing close to a $230 million cash value after taxes.
Odds of winning are slim -- about a one in 175 million chance.
We spoke with one lottery player who tells us what he would do if he won all of that money.
"If I had $360 million I'd go buy me a house, I wouldn't buy no big house, I'd make sure it's a one bedroom because I'm not used to living by myself," said Clarence Kelly Williams. "I just hope that somebody I know hits it if I can't hit it, so that way I know I will get a portion of it."
Also coming up is the drawing for the Mega Millions Jackpot which right now is at $190 million. The drawing is on Friday, and if you are the lucky winner, you could walk away with $140 million.
But keep this in mind -- you are more likely to get struck by lightning than win the lottery.
