When will it end? If a winner isn’t drawn on Wednesday night, the Powerball jackpot will grow to $2 billion, with a cash value of $1.24 billion.

Powerball told CNNMoney the prize for Wednesday’s drawing will not change from its current level,  $1.5 billion.

This is already by far the biggest jackpot ever recorded by any country.

If a winner isn’t drawn, it will be the 20th without a grand prize winner.

The current pot has been growing since Nov. 4.

The jackpot broke into the top 10 biggest in U.S. history on Jan. 3 when it hit $400 million.

Tickets for Powerball can be purchased in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands… Utah is not one of them.

Wednesday night’s Powerball numbers will be drawn at 10:59 p.m. ET.
