The Tennessee Lottery said the base prize for matching all five white numbers is $1 million, but the player added the Power Play which upped the prize money to $2 million.

The previous largest single jackpot of $758.7 million was won last year by Mavis Wanczyk, a 53-year-old mother of two from MA. It is bound to become the largest prize in USA history. The numbers drawn in the Powerball Saturday were 16 54 57 62 69 23.

The 24 semi-weekly Mega Millions draws have failed to produce a top victor since July 24, when an 11-member office pool in Santa Clara County, California, hit a £415million ($543m) jackpot.

On Tuesday, that would mean a total of almost $905 million - before taxes, according to the Mega Millions website.

The Powerball jackpot has jumped to $620 million after no winning tickets were sold.

The victor might opt for the cash prize of more than $270 million, from which the federal government will take 25% right away, and more later. Many hopefuls haven't played before.
