ROSEVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) – Somebody could win a life-changing amount of money after the Powerball drawing that will take place Wednesday night.
Officials with the Minnesota State Lottery said that nobody in the 44-lottery Powerball network won last Saturday’s $200 million jackpot. The next drawing is Wednesday night, and officials said it will rise to about a $250 million prize.
Officials said it’s the first time in three months that the jackpot has gotten this high. The last time a Powerball prize was near the mid $200 million range was Nov. 2, 2011, when it got to $245 million.
Interested gamblers have until 9 p.m. to purchase tickets for Wednesday night’s drawing. A reminder from lottery officials: It’s now $2 for one Powerball ticket.
