With the multistate Powerball drawing set at $300 million this evening, thousands of lottery players are hoping luck is on their side when it comes to holding the golden ticket.
Both lottery officials and mathematicians said every Powerball ticket has the same chance of winning.
The drawing is scheduled for 7:59 p.m. following a ticket sales cutoff of 7 p.m.

The game is played in Washington state and 42 other states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
To win, a $2 ticket must match five numbers in any order plus a sixth specific Powerball number.
If the jackpot is won by a single ticket-holder, the winner can get the $300 million in a 29-year annuity or take a lump-sum prize estimated at $172.7 million, Powerball officials said.
