Powerball jackpot now up to estimated $1.5 billion

No winning tickets were sold in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing. The next drawing is Saturday night.

The prize now stands at an estimated $1.5 billion. That’s a cash value of just over $745 million and that jackpot could still grow if enough tickets are sold before the drawing.

There have now been 39 straight drawings without a jackpot winner since the last one hit on August 3rd.

If a player wins Saturday’s jackpot, it will be the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history and the third-largest in U.S. lottery history.
