DES MOINES, Iowa - Saturday night's Powerball jackpot has increased again, this time to a record $600 million.

The amount surpasses a $587.6 million jackpot that was split by winners in Arizona and Missouri in November 2012.

While the jackpot is a record for Powerball, it is not the all-time high for a lottery drawing in the United States. That distinction belongs to a $656 million Mega Millions drawing in March 2012.

Powerball is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
