After no Powerball winners on Saturday, the jackpot has increased to $400 million for Wednesday night's drawing, the New York Lottery announced Monday.
The $100 million jump is due to the increase in sales after Saturday. At $400 million,
Wednesday's jackpot is the third largest in Powerball history.
The largest Powerball jackpot
to date was $590.5 million, won in Florida in May 2013.
If no one matches all five
numbers plus the Powerball in Wednesday night's drawing, the jackpot
will continue to grow.
