Powerball jackpot remains at $425M on Wednesday for now


MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - So far at least, Powerball has not increased its record jackpot for Wednesday night.

It’s still at $425 million – but lottery officials expect it to rise amid a flurry of ticket sales.

Wisconsin is among 42 states, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands that play Powerball.

Chuck Strutt, who heads the Multi-State Lottery Association, believes there’s a 60 percent chance that somebody will win the top prize Wednesday night. He says the jackpot has already defied long odds by rolling over 16 times since the last jackpot winner.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1-in-175-million.

Akron math professor Tim Norfolk says you’re much more likely to be struck by lightning. Those odds are only about 1-in-5,000.
