The latest Powerball jackpot is now estimated at $400 million. It is the fourth largest for Powerball, and the nation's sixth-largest jackpot ever. The cash payout would amount to almost $228 million. And that's the eighth biggest lump sum for any American lottery. And perhaps the most important statistic: a person's odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175 million. This week's Mega Millions jackpot is up to $154 million.
