Powerball jackpot soars to $317 MILLION

Powerball mania as jackpot hits $550M — and may go higher

For the fourth time this year, the Powerball jackpot has reached over a whopping $300 million.

Because no one hit all the winning numbers drawn Wednesday night,  Saturday’s jackpot is now worth $317 million. The prize will have a cash value of $176.3 million.

In its history, Powerball has produced 11 jackpots topping $300 million, with five of them within the last 10 months.

In May, a Florida woman set the record of winning the biggest Powerball jackpot of a staggering $590.5 million. She claimed $370.9 million in cash before taxes.
