These are the chances of winning the $875 million Powerball jackpot.

The current Powerball jackpot is $875 million, but the likelihood of a winner is small.

The sum increased from $750 million after Wednesday's drawing produced no winners. One ticket costs $2 and has a winning chance of 1 in 292.2 million for those who wish to try for the big prize.

The likelihood of winning $4, which is just double the price of a ticket, is 1 in 38.32.

Instead, replicate the algorithm the computer used to produce the winning digits: Glickman advised using a random number generator or picking them at random.
