Jackpot Is 3rd Largest In Powerball History

Tools

The Powerball jackpot has ballooned to $360 million in a matter of weeks, a jump that's propelled it to be the third largest Powerball jackpot and the seventh largest jackpot in history.

Lottery officials say the "cross-selling" of Powerball and Mega Millions tickets, as well as a game redesign in 2012, boosted jackpots and increased the odds of winning some kind of prize.

The last major win came when a New Jersey man won a $338.3 million jackpot on March 23.

It is considered the fourth largest Powerball jackpot in history.

The latest drawing is scheduled Wednesday night.

It has a $229.2 million cash value.
