What would you do with more than 400-million dollars? That's the payout over 30 years for tonight's Powerball jackpot. A single winner taking the lump sum option would receive just under 244-million dollars.
No one has won the Powerball jackpot since December 17th. People in 44 states, including California, and those in Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are buying up lottery tickets, and that reportedly has made the Wednesday drawing the 10th largest in the history of the game. However, the odds of winning the whole jackpot are one in almost 300-thousand.
While no one matched all six numbers for grand prize in last Saturday's drawing, there were five one-million- dollar prizes in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Maryland, and Texas.
