NBC News- If you have two bucks and a dream, Powerball has a game for you.

The jackpot of the multi-state lottery game has surged to $600 million ahead of Saturday's drawing -- the second-largest pot in U.S. lottery history.

The drawing in the 43-state game is at 10:59 p.m. ET Saturday.

The estimated jackpot surpasses Powerball's previous record set in November 2012, when the jackpot jumped to $587.5 million before two winners split the prize.

The largest jackpot ever claimed was a $656 million Mega Millions prize split three ways in March.

The estimated cash value of Saturday's drawing, should a winner choose to be paid in one lump sum, now stands at $376.9 million -- before takes, of course.
