Powerball jackpot climbs over half-billion dollar mark

The Powerball jackpot will continue to climb, because no winners were announced after Wednesday night's drawing.

Each game grew larger as a succession of drawings came up without winners.

Powerball offers two jackpot payment options: the $510 million jackpot prize paid over 29 years in 30 graduated payments; or the cash option, which is approximately $324 million.

It'll be at least the eighth-largest jackpot in US lottery history.

Six tickets were sold that are worth $50,000.

No tickets matched all six numbers, so the jackpot is now over half a billion dollars - $510 million - to become one of the 10 largest in USA lottery history.

The last MI player to win the Powerball jackpot was Julie Leach, of Three Rivers. The odds of winning any prize are 1 in 25.

One ticket was sold that is worth $1 million. The estimated cash value was $273.4 million.

Powerball is now played in 44 states plus Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

Powerball tickets can be purchased at all Colorado Lottery retailers. There were Match 5 winners in California and Florida. So, if you were lucky enough to win both, all of your problems would have quickly evaporated.
