CINCINNAIT, OH - The POWERBALL jackpot for Wednesday's drawing has been raised to a quarter of a billion dollars.
Originally set at $245 million, the extra $5 million makes the new jackpot the tenth largest POWERBALL jackpot in history and currently the largest jackpot in the world.
Quick sales across the 32 lotteries selling POWERBALL caused the increase from $245 million to $250 million. The cash option for the jackpot is set at $124.8 million.
