PowerBall® Jackpot Reaches $500 Million
$10,000 PowerBall® Ticket claimed
Wednesday's record-breaking PowerBall® jackpot has been increased to half a billion dollars! If the $500 million jackpot is hit, and the winner chooses the cash option, the lump sum payment would be a record $327 million, the highest cash jackpot ever for PowerBall®.
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.
The $10,000 winning PowerBall® ticket sold in Rhode Island for last Saturday's PowerBall® drawing was claimed by a woman from Providence. Her Quick Pick ticket matched four numbers and the PowerBall® number. Colbea Enterprises at 1315 Park Avenue in Cranston sold the winning ticket.
