Powerball Jackpot at $325M for Saturday
Someone could become $325 million richer tonight. That's how high the Powerball jackpot has grown over the last few drawings.
The jackpot is the fourth-largest in the game's history. A single winner's cash payout would be nearly $213 million before taxes.
Powerball jackpots have increased more rapidly since the price doubled to $2 in January.
Powerball organizers say this is the first run-up to a large jackpot that's fallen over a major holiday. They're unsure whether it will help or hinder sales.
