Powerball Jackpot Increases to $700 Million

The Powerball Jackpot has increased from $650 million to $700 million ahead of Wednesday night’s drawing.  According to USA Today,  the Powerball jackpot has not been won since early June. Meanwhile, the  one-time cash option is set at $443 million by the multi-state lottery  game that is played in 44 states. The $700 million prize would make it  the second-largest lottery prize ever handed out in America. It would be  topped only by a $1.6 billion Powerball prize that was shared by three  ticket holders in January 2016.
