Powerball 112512L 300x168 Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $183M[1]After rolling over nine times since the last winner, the Powerball lottery jackpot has reached a cool $183 million, reports WXIA in Atlanta[2].

Lottery officials report that the $183 million figure is the lowest the prize could be. If more tickets are purchased before the drawing, the winner — if any — would take home even more cash.

If a winner chooses the annuity option, he or she would receive the $183 million over 29 years in 30 payments. There is also a cash option available which would pay $112 million in a lump sum.
