Drawing nears for $750 million Powerball jackpot

On Wednesday night, when it was at $620 million, the Powerball jackpot looked sort of puny given all the attention lavished on the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot won in SC on Tuesday.

The $750 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid annually over 29 years.

Saturday's Powerball drawing would pay an estimated $750 million if a victor matches all six numbers.
