Powerball jackpot grows to more than $300M

BRAINTREE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Powerball jackpot is growing again! No one has won the multi-state lottery game’s grand prize since April 1, so Wednesday’s jackpot is now estimated at $302 million.

If you are lucky enough to match all five numbers in the main combination plus the red Powerball, you have the choice of accepting a cash lump sum of $187.3 million.

Wednesday’s jackpot is the highest it has been since the $435.3 million jackpot on February 22.

The highest Powerball jackpot of all time was $1.586 billion in January of 2016, though the jackpot had to be split among winners in California, Florida, and Tennessee.
