Powerball Jackpot Grows For Saturday Drawing
The Powerball jackpot swelled after no one matched all the winning numbers in Wednesday's drawing.
Players are grabbing tickets in hopes of capturing the $270 million jackpot, or a $175.8 million cash prize, in Saturday's drawing.
$270 million is quite a cash haul but far from the record. The largest Powerball jackpot ever, totaling $587.5 million, came in November when a Missouri couple and an Arizona man split the winnings.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot is 1:175,223,510.
Don't laugh. It could happen. Remember this South Dakotan?
