Powerball Jackpot Grows to $400M

The next Powerball winner will have a chance to claim one of the game’s 10 biggest prizes this week as the jackpot has grown to roughly $400 mlilion. 

Lottery officials say no one claimed Saturday’s $334 million prize.   Someone from Pennsylvania won $2 million and three players from California, Connecticut and South Carolina won $1 million in the game.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. 

The next drawing will be held Wednesday.
