Powerball Jackpot Now Up to $450 Million

The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday is now an estimated $450 Million, thanks to fast sales for the largest lottery jackpot in nearly a year… and the sixth-largest jackpot ever in North America. No one has won Powerball’s biggest prize since November 4th.

If there is no winner after Wednesday night’s drawing, the prize will keep climbing. The last time Powerball had grown this large was in February 2015, when three winners split a $564.1 million prize.
