As if $425 or $500 Million isn't enough, the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery announced this morning that Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot has jumped to $550 Million. When the jackpot rolled last Saturday, the Lottery publicized a $425 Million jackpot for Wednesday. Yesterday, it was raised to $500 Million. This morning, after consultation with Powerball officials, it was revealed that heavy sales have pushed more dollars into the prize pool, increasing the jackpot to $550 Million.
This jackpot is the largest in Powerball history.
