Powerball Jackpot At $750 Million

Posted at 6:11 AM, Mar 27, 2019

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– The lottery is on the verge of one of it’s largest jackpots yet!

The pot has been growing since someone bought a winning Powerball ticket back in December.

Although the odds of winning the Powerball prize are about one in 292 million people, the prize is already at an estimated $750 million.

This is the drawing for the fourth largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history. Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing is also the third largest in Powerball history.

This comes after no one chose all the winning numbers in Saturday’s drawing for the more than $600 million jackpot.

There was, notably, a $1 million winner in Radcliff, Ky., last week.

Now, if you’re thinking about buying a ticket make sure to purchase it before the drawing at 11 p.m.
