Powerball jackpot jumps to $320 million

Posted:

The New York Lottery says the jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing has been increased to $320 million Thursday. The $60 million jump from Wednesday's jackpot is thanks to increased sales across all participating Powerball states.

The new jackpot is, so far, the sixth largest Powerball jackpot in the game's 20-year history. The largest jackpot to date was $587.5 million, won in Arizona and Missouri in November 2012.

If no one matches all five numbers plus the Powerball in Saturday night's drawing, the jackpot will continue to grow.
