Believe it or not, that's still not the all-time Powerball record; that belongs to a 2006 jackpot worth $365 million. However, if no one matches all the winning numbers tonight, a new record jackpot is likely to be set. Forty-two states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands play Powerball. California is not one of those Powerball states. If you want a ticket, you'll have to drive to either Oregon and Arizona.
