Nearly three months after a Powerball ticket sold in Pennsylvania won the $200 million cash prize, the game’s jackpot has increased to a now-estimated $1.5 billion.
The estimated total is just short of the Powerball record and the third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history, according to Powerball’s website. The U.S record was set in 2016 at $1.586 billion.
But until someone is lucky enough to match all six winning numbers and win the jackpot, lottery players across the U.S. will continue to shell out their dollars in hopes of beating the odds and winning big.
