UNITED STATES -- It's the largest jackpot in Powerball history and it's still growing as we inch closer to tonight's drawing.

With the $550 million dollar jackpot, the cash option would be $360.2 million before taxes.

Lottery officials say there's a 75 percent chance the winning numbers will be drawn tonight.
