POWER BALL REACHES AN OUTRAGEOUS AMOUNT?!?!
The estimated jackpot for Wednesday night’s Powerball lottery has climbed to $700 million, making it the second-largest in U.S. history. The jackpot is listed as $700 million, but that refers to the annuity option, doled out in 30 payments over 29 years. Nearly all winners favor the cash option, which pays significantly less. For the current jackpot, the cash prize would be $443.3 million. Next drawing will be this Wednesday August 23rd.
