8th largest Powerball jackpot is up for grabs Wednesday night

By Iman Palm,


The upcoming Powerball drawing is poised to be the eighth largest in the game’s history, California Lottery officials announced Wednesday.

The grand prize has grown to an estimated $653 million, and if someone hits all six numbers during tonight’s drawing, they could take home $350 million if they chose the lump sum payout option.

One lucky California resident already became a millionaire after winning $3.9 million during Monday night’s drawing. That ticket matched five of the six numbers and was sold at an Arco AmPm in Fontana.

Another Californian won the recording-breaking $2.04 billion Powerball prize in November. The winning ticket was sold in Altadena .

The next Powerball drawing will take place Wednesday night and people have until 7 p.m. to buy their tickets.
