Powerball: $337 Million Saturday
Those people clogging up the line at the convenience store cash register are there for good reason: The Powerball jackpot is up to $337 million. That's about $209 million if you take the cash option.
If a Michigan player win’s Saturday’s $337 million jackpot, it would equal the largest Powerball prize won in the state. On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot. Lawson’s jackpot holds the record for the largest Lottery prize ever won in Michigan.

A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1.
