SCHENECTADY, N.Y.—The New York Lottery announced the $400 million jackpot for Wednesday's Powerball.
The $70,000,000 jump from Saturday's jackpot is due to brisk sales across all 43 participating states.
With the increased jackpot, New York is expected to see even more winners across the state.
If no one matches all five numbers plus the Powerball in Wednesday's drawing, the jackpot will continue to grow.
Tickets for Wednesday's jackpot can be purchased until 9 p.m.
