Jackpot For Wednesday’s Powerball Drawing To Top $1 Billion!
Nobody won Monday’s $922 million Powerball jackpot, meaning the prize for Wednesday’s drawing has increased to an estimated $1 billion! The jackpot will likely be worth even more if ticket sales surge prior to the drawing. As it now stands, however, Wednesday’s prize will be the third-largest in Powerball history – and the seventh-highest in the history of the lottery. The biggest Powerball jackpot ever was $2.04 billion, which was won last year. Should the winner of Wednesday’s drawing decide to take a lump sum payment instead of annual installments, that person will take home about $516.8 million, according to lottery officials.
