DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) —In just two days, up to $450 million could be up for grabs in the Powerball drawing.
No winner was selected in the latest $380 million drawing, Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager for the Multi-State Lottery Association, says the estimated value of Wednesday’s drawing will be $450 million.
The huge jackpot is a return to form for Powerball, which has been known along with Mega Millions for its record-breaking jackpots in recent years. But the Powerball lottery has experienced a slump, with nearly a year passing since its jackpot total climbed above $300 million.
Powerball’s last major jackpot was in February 2014, when it climbed to $425 million.
Powerball tickets cost $2 each.
