Powerball jackpot tops $700M for Wednesday drawing

Got Lotto fever yet?

If you’re playing the Mississippi Lottery, you may want to grab a Powerball ticket or two before tomorrow night.

That’s because the Powerball jackpot has risen again and is expected to be an estimated $700 million for the Wednesday night drawing.

The cash value is an estimated 335.7 million. It will be the 36th drawing for this jackpot and the first time a jackpot has reached $700 million in more than a year. It also makes Wednesday’s drawing the 5th largest Powerball jackpot in the game’s 30-year history and the 8th largest in U.S. lottery history.

There is a Mega Millions jackpot drawing tonight for an estimated $45 million — estimated cash value $21.4 million — and a Match 5 drawing tonight for $95,000.
