PowerBall® Jackpot Jumps to $300 Million Due to High Sales
$40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® Ticket Sold in Rhode Island Remains Unclaimed
Brisk sales have caused the PowerBall® jackpot to jump from $290 million to $300 million for Saturday's drawing. It could get even higher before then.
The jackpot has now rolled 11 times with no winner. The cash option is an estimated $172.7 million. The largest Powerball jackpot was $590.5 million, won in Florida in May 2013.
A $40,000 PowerBall® PowerPlay® ticket sold in Rhode Island for last Saturday's drawing remains unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at Colbea Enterprises, 2200 Pawtucket Ave., East Providence.
