Powerball Jackpot Increased to $500 Million


The Multi-State Lottery Association’s Powerball Group has increased tonight’s estimated Powerball jackpot to $500 million due to strong sales across the country. The jackpot is the fourth largest Powerball jackpot in history.

Wednesday night’s drawing will be the 18th drawing since the most recent Powerball grand prize winner on November 4, 2015.
Plays cost $2 each and the Powerplay (which can increase non-jackpot prizes) is available for an additional $1. Tickets can be purchased at West Virginia Lottery retailers across the State up until 9:59 p.m. on draw days.

The game’s drawings are at 10:59 p.m. ET on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and are broadcast live from Tallahassee, Fla.
