Tonight’s jackpot, with a cash value of $244.7 million, is the fourth largest ever offered in the United States. The drawing is Wednesday night at 11 p.m. and can be seen on WABC TV and WPVI TV and on the Powerball website. Text NEWS to 89000 to be the first to know when the numbers are drawn.

If no one wins tonight’s jackpot, “We would be in world record territory” for the next drawing, on Saturday, Chuck Strutt, head of the Multi-State Lottery Association, told NBCNews.

There has been no Powerball winner since June 22 when a Delaware County woman won a jackpot with an annuity value of $131 million. Pedro Quezada of Passaic won a $338millilon annuitized jackpot in March.
