Powerball lotto hits $380 million for Saturday drawing

Feeling lucky? Saturday night's Powerball jackpot has hit 380 million dollars for a single winner. A correct pick of five numbers plus the Powerball could pay out 256 million as a cash prize. 

You'll need to hand over 101 million to Uncle Sam for taxes. Don't forget Georgia's tax take. That will cost you another 6% or 9.3 million. You'll have to get by on about 146.6 million dollars after taxes. 

If a winner is drawn tonight, the jackpot will be the sixth largest in Powerball history. In December 2013, a Stone Mountain woman split a 648 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot. That winning ticket was sold at a Buckhead newsstand. 

If you win tonight, Georgia Lottery officials say to sign the ticket immediately. You'll have to claim your millions at a local Georgia Lottery district office. 

The Powerball multi-state lotto game draws winning numbers every Wednesday and Saturday evening.
