(WTNH)– Powerball has climbed to a $450 million jackpot after there were no winning tickets sold in the last drawing.
The $394 million jackpot was not claimed over the weekend after Saturday’s drawing. The next drawing is on Wednesday, February 11th and will be around $450 million, or $304.1 million for a cash payout.
The jackpot is growing closer to the largest Powerball jackpot in history. That was $590 million and it was won by an 84-year-old Florida woman in May of 2013.
The odds of winning the Powerball Grand Prize is 1 in 175,223,510. Time magazine reports that you have a far more likely chance to play in the NBA than winning this prize.
But as some lotto players say, if you don’t play, you can’t win.
