Des Moines, IA AP) —┬áThe Powerball jackpot is climbing again, though it will take some time before it breaks any major record.
The Multi-State Lottery Association said Wednesday’s jackpot is up to an estimated $284 million after no winning ticket was selected Saturday.
The jackpot is well below the kind of prize money that catches a casual player’s attention these days. But it shows how changes to top lottery games have created bigger jackpots in shorter periods of time.
A $636 million Mega Millions jackpot in December was the second-largest in U.S. lottery history.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of matching all six numbers in the game are 1 in about 175 million.
