The Powerball jackpot has surged to a staggering $700 million ahead of the upcoming Wednesday night drawing.
This significant increase of $15 million over the previously reported total jackpot of $685 million comes after no winners were declared in Monday's drawing.
It has been 30 drawings since the last jackpot-winning ticket was sold, which had a prize of $1.75 billion won by an anonymous individual who purchased their ticket in Frazier Park.
In a recent draw, one ticket matching five of the six numbers was sold in Anaheim, earning the lucky ticket holder an estimated $2,085,363.
Additionally, four other tickets matched five numbers but missed the Powerball number. The overall odds of winning any prize in Powerball are 1 in 24.9, while the odds of hitting the jackpot stand at 1 in 292.2 million.
Powerball tickets are priced at $2 each, with drawings held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.
This growing jackpot has captured the attention of lottery players nationwide, eagerly awaiting the next draw to see if a new multimillionaire will emerge.
