Powerball Jackpot Soars to a Huge $425 MillionWednesday August 7th 2013
Lottery fever is sweeping across America as tonight’s Powerball jackpot is worth a huge $425 million.
Tonight’s jackpot was first set at $400 million after Saturday’s drawing, but after a rise in ticket sales the jackpot was increased to $425 million.
This is the third largest jackpot seen in Powerball history, sitting behind a $587.5 million jackpot won in November 2012 and the highest Powerball jackpot of $590.5 million won by Gloria MacKenzie back in May 2013.
Powerball’s last jackpot winner was Patricia Chandler, a Pennsylvania resident who hit a $131.5 million jackpot on June 22, 2013.
This mammoth jackpot is expected to spur millions of ticket sales across all participating states, so if you have yet to purchase your Powerball ticket(s) for tonight’s drawing we advise you buy yours in plenty of time to avoid missing your chance at winning tonight’s life-changing jackpot!
