Powerball jackpot reaches $348 million

COLUMBUS (WCMH) – For the second time in 2016, the Powerball jackpot is surging to record levels.

After tickets correctly matched all six numbers drawn on Saturday, Wednesday’s jackpot is estimated to be $348 million with a $226.1 million cash value.

If a winning number is drawn Wednesday, it will be the 9th largest Powerball jackpot and 15th largest lottery jackpot ever in the United States.

In January, three winning tickets were drawn for the largest-ever lottery jackpot, worth $1.6 billion.

The odds to win are one in 292.2 million.
