The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing has reached a game-record jackpot of $500 million.

The estimated cash value of the jackpot is $327 million. This jackpot is the largest prize ever offered in the Powerball game. The Powerball jackpot was last won in the drawing on Oct. 3, so it has been growing for nearly two months.
The previous jackpot record in Powerball was a $365 million prize won in February 2006 by eight co-workers at a Nebraska meatpacking plant.

Players have until 8:59 p.m. on Wednesday to purchase tickets for the drawing. Powerball drawings are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:59 p.m. The Oklahoma Lottery encourages everyone to play responsibly.
