Powerball jackpot 3rd largest in games history, no winner yet - Tucson News Now

Powerball jackpot 3rd largest in games history, no winner yet

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Many players are still hopeful.  The Powerball jackpot now stands at $475 million dollars, the third biggest prize ever.

Lottery officials expect Jackpot totals of this size to continue to climb in shorter amounts of time.  A game redesign last year increased the odds of winning some kind of prize, but also lowered the possible number combinations to win.

The redesign means players don't really need to strike big to get lucky. 

A $1 increase and new $1 million and $2 million prizes means the odds of winning something have increased. 

Just last Saturday, there was no Powerball jackpot winner, but more than a dozen tickets won $1 million prizes in 10 states.

The next drawing will be Saturday.
