Powerball jackpot soars to $750 million before Wednesday night's drawing

$150,000 Powerball ticket sold in Arizona

The Virginia Lottery says that no one in Virginia or anywhere else matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, the estimated jackpot for Wednesday's drawing is $750 million. Donald Lawson of Lapeer, Michigan won $337 million in Powerball in 2012.

If a MI resident hits the jackpot, it would be the largest lottery prize won in the state. The odds of winning are roughly 1 in 292.2 million. Since then, there have been 25 drawings in a row without a jackpot victor.

"We are hopeful that NY can go four-for-four and win the top prize", said Dean in a press release Wednesday.
