(CNN) — The Powerball numbers are out and there could be a new millionaire in America.

The winning numbers drawn Saturday were 8, 12, 13, 19, 27 and the Powerball was 4.

Saturday night’s jackpot is an almost irresistible $750 million or a one-time cash option of $428.6 million.

If there’s a winner or winners, it would be one of largest jackpots in the nation’s history.

It could be the fourth largest in US lottery history and the game’s third largest jackpot.

The largest Powerball jackpot was $1.586 billion and it was split three ways in January 2016.

Saturday’s potential jackpot is surely mind-blowing. Just imagine, if you had it all in $100 bills it would make a stack as high as the tallest tower in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

The Burj Khalifa is twice the height of New York’s Empire State Building and three times as tall as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Powerball has climbed since the last winning ticket took home the jackpot in New York in August. There have been 21 drawings since then without a winner.

The odds of winning the top prize might be slim but don’t forget there are plenty of secondary prizes. No one won the top prize in the last drawing but a few people matched all five white balls and won $1 million. Lottery officials said the winning tickets were sold in Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

Each Powerball ticket is $2. The game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
