Powerball Jackpot Skyrockets To $310 Million

Posted On February 10, 2012

Powerball(Undated) – No grand prize winner in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing means the jackpot now stands at $310 million.

 

The jackpot is the third highest in the lottery game’s history.

 

For those hoping to strike it rich, the popular multi-state lottery’s recent ticket price increase has improved the overall odds of winning.  As it stands now, each ticket has odds of hitting the jackpot of roughly one in 175 million. 

 

Prior to the changes, the odds were closer to one in 195 million. 

 

The next drawing takes place Saturday night, February 11.
