Big Powerball Jackpot: $257 Million!
LITTLE ROCK, AR - Another big Powerball jackpot is up for grabs.
Tonight's drawing at 9:59 will be for an estimated $257 million jackpot. That amount could go higher if ticket sales soar.
The cash value of Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot, to a winner who chooses to receive a single lump-sum payment, is estimated at $151.9 million.
Powerball is a multi-state jackpot game. Drawings are held at 9:59 p.m. CST every Wednesday and Saturday. Five numbered balls are drawn from 1 to 59 and one numbered ball is drawn from 1 to 35. If all your numbers match those that are chosen, you win the jackpot, which starts at $40 million and grows until someone wins. If other players also match all six numbers, the prize will be shared in equal amounts. Each Powerball play is $2. For an additional dollar, you can add the PowerPlay option to increase non-jackpot winnings by as much as a million dollars.
In other lottery news, there was no top prize winner in the Arkansas-only Natural State Jackpot Tuesday night, Wednesday’s Jackpot is now $145,000.
The Friday night Mega Millions Jackpot is estimated to be $66 million.
