Powerball jackpot sits at $403M

(CNN) - The jackpot keeps growing for the Powerball lottery.

No one won Saturday's multi-state drawing, so the top prize for Wednesday's drawing is $403 million.

Whomever wins the jackpot can choose to take their winnings either in a lump sum cash payment or an annuity paid out over 29 years.

After taxes, the lump sum payment is nearly $244 million.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
