Powerball Jackpot Continues To Climb
It doesn't appear as if you will be stuffing your Thanksgiving turkey with one hundred dollar bills this year. There was no big winner in Wednesday night's drawing in the multi-state Powerball Lottery game.
The estimated jackpot for last night's drawing was $359 million. No ticket was sold that matched all of the numbers and the Powerball. Therefore, the jackpot will continue to roll over and get larger.
While no single ticket claimed the big money, there were some high dollar prizes handed out in the Wednesday's drawing. There were 1 million dollar winners in California, Florida, and Maryland.
It is estimated that by the time the ping pong balls drop on Saturday night that there will be $402 million dollars in the pool. The drawing is scheduled for 9:59 PM Louisiana time. Ticket sales will be cut off at 8:59 PM on Saturday.
