Powerball soars to $450M for Wednesday

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE - What would you do with $450 million? That's a popular question throughout the country now that the jackpot for the popular multi-state game has grown to that incredible amount. 

And although there was no jackpot winner Saturday night, the drawing created nearly 44,000 winning Powerball tickets in Tennessee alone.

"The big jackpots are always a source of great fun and intense interest, creating excitement throughout the state and beyond," said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Lottery.

"When a jackpot gets this high, sales rise even more quickly, driving the jackpot upward, all of which is a tremendous boost for the education programs funded by the Lottery. We encourage players to get their tickets early, have fun and please play responsibly. It only takes one to win."

Powerball is a popular drawing-style lottery game played in 44 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

The record jackpot for the game was $590.5 million, won in May by a single player in Florida.
