PowerBallŪ Jackpot Raised to $320 Million

August 14, 2012

PowerBall® Jackpot Raised to $320 Million

Due to high sales, tomorrow's estimated PowerBall® jackpot has been raised to $320 million annuity, making it the 4th largest PowerBall® jackpot in the history of the game.  If the winner chooses the cash option, the lump sum payment will be $213.3 million.

This is also the second largest jackpot amount since the PowerBall® game changed on January 15.  The record $336.4 million jackpot was won on February 11 by a ticket sold in Newport, RI.  There have been 14 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner since the current run started on June 27, 2012.

The Power Play® option is still available for an extra $1 per play.  Instead of randomly multiplying prizes by two to five times, Power Play® now moves each prize level up by a set amount.  The top prize of $1 million is doubled to $2 million and the $10,000 prize quadruples to $40,000.  All other prizes are also increased.

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.
