The Powerball Lottery is again hitting a high in the jackpot amount.


Chuck Baumann with the Oregon Lottery says the $320-million is the third highest jackpot of all time.


He says should you be the lucky one, the first thing you should do is:  “Get some advice from a financial planner or someone who has an idea of what to do with a huge sum of money like that, because $320-million is enough to alter your lifestyle a little bit. And it's good to have a plan in place and usually that helps the winner sleep a little bit when they are able to talk to somebody who is a little bit smarter than they are and they can advise them how they can take the prize."


Baumann says that the Oregon Megabucks is now up to $3.8 million and the Mega Millions is up to $36-million.


He says the deadline for buying your ticket is 7 p-m the day of the drawing.  The Powerball drawing is Wednesday.
