For each drawing that fails to produce a winner, North Carolinians are witness to some lottery history.
The payout in the Powerball drawing tonight is at 240 million dollars. It is the biggest jackpot in the multi-state lottery since North Carolina became a Powerball member last May.
If you don't know, a player must correctly have the six numbers that will be drawn at 10:59 p-m tonight -- five white balls and one red ball. The estimated value of the jackpot is 114 million dollars if the winner takes a one-time cash payout instead of installment payments.
There are payouts if players match fewer than the six numbers drawn.
