It could be a very Merry Christmas, if you know the lucky numbers.

In September, Julie Leach, of Three Rivers, won the game’s $310.5 million jackpot. In February, three players from North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas split a $564.1 million jackpot. The cash option for Saturday’s jackpot is about $126 million.

On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot. Lawson’s jackpot holds the record for the largest Lottery prize ever won in Michigan.
