Powerball jackpot jumps to $314 million with no big lottery winner


No one has won the Powerball jackpot in more than 2 months. The cash option for Saturday’s drawing will be at least $179 million

Another Powerball lottery drawing was held without a jackpot winner on Wednesday night, pushing the top prize for Saturday’s drawing to $314 million.

The cash option will be worth at least $179.4 million. 

There were three tickets sold for Tuesday’s drawing that matched five numbers but not the Powerball – one each in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas. Each is worth $1 million. 

In addition, 15 tickets matched four numbers plus the Powerball. Twelve are worth $50,000
