PowerBall® Jackpot Jumps to $380 Million
Strong PowerBall® sales have pushed the estimated jackpot up from $360 million to $380 million for Saturday's drawing. The cash option is an estimated $256.8 million. This would be the sixth largest jackpot in PowerBall® history if it is won on Saturday. Tickets can be purchased up until 9:50pm tomorrow night.
There have been 19 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner since the current run began on December 3, 2014.
In addition to the rapidly growing jackpot, the subsidiary prizes, ranging up to $1,000,000, have many players opting for the Power Play® feature, which for an extra $1 per wager, can multiply the prize amount by 2, 3, 4, or 5, up to $2,000,000.
All players should sign the back of their tickets immediately upon purchase and put them in a safe place. The tickets are the only claim to a prize.
