MIAMI -

Feeling lucky? Play the Powerball! Overnight it jumped $10 million due to surge sales nationwide.

If you don’t win the large Powerball jackpot, you still have a chance of walking away with millions by winning one of the lower-tier prizes, which range from $2 to $4 million by matching any of the non-jackpot-winning combinations.

The Powerball rollover is expected to generate more than $22.5 million to education.

Jackpot prizes are paid in 30 annual installments or as a one-time, lump-sum payment. Jackpot prizes must be claimed within 60 days after Saturday's draw to receive the cash option of $172.7 million.

Winners have 180 days from the applicable drawing to claim their prize.

Saturday's Powerball numbers were 21-24-36-42-45, and the Powerball was 15.
