Powerball Jackpot Hits $375 Million

One of the biggest Powerball jackpots of the year will be up for grabs tonight after a run of 18 rollovers propelled the top prize to an astronomical $375 million. The jackpot has been growing quickly since a player from Arizona won $60 million on 1st April, and now stands at the 12th largest in the history of the game.

The cash value of Wednesday’s jackpot is $235.4 million, so if anyone is lucky enough to win they can choose whether to take this as a lump sum or the full $375 million in annual instalments over 29 years. If the jackpot is not won it is likely to blast past $400 million in the next game, while many players could still win life-changing prizes.

A Baltimore player recently came forward to claim the $50,000 he had won on 24th May after matching four main numbers plus the Powerball. John Gephardt, a retired 76-year-old, told the Maryland Lottery: “I am a faithful player. I play Powerball and Mega Millions each week. I play only one game and use the quick-pick method.” He added that he will continue to play in the hope of winning again, and that he will save his $50,000 in the bank until he really needs it.

Anyone who wins tonight’s jackpot would not need to have any worries about saving the money until they really needed it, and could start thinking about moving house, buying new cars or going on holiday straight away, as well as providing financial freedom for family and friends.

If you would like to get your hands on a magnificent Powerball prize, possibly even the massive jackpot, you can pick numbers online or play via an authorised retailer in any of the participating states or jurisdictions. Good luck!
