Powerball Jackpot soars to $700 million

"Now it's the waiting game". You can also win either $50,000, $100, $7 or $4 based on matching a varying number of the winning numbers.

Powerball drawings are held at 11 p.m.

The Powerball jackpot keeps climbing.

Levi Kuznicki, a cashier at a Mobil station in Coeur d'Alene, described the lottery craze in recent days as "insane".

Mark Rogers bought his ticket Tuesday and said he usually buys a ticket a week. "But when it gets this high, people enjoy the entertainment value of thinking about what they'd do with the $700 million".

"This amount is considerably higher than the average jackpot prize for other lottos, so there is a real opportunity for people to try a new lottery and see if they can win big".

Kuznicki hasn't worked at the gas station long so the lottery hype has been a unique experience for him.

Chances of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

The latest $700 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid over 29 years.

They seemed to forget that it was just last summer that a $487 million winning Powerball ticket - now the sixth-largest jackpot on record - was sold at the Hannaford supermarket in Raymond. Allow contributions only from those who are at least 21 years old, the legal minimum age to purchase lottery tickets in Iowa.

Anyone who's not a state government, that is. There's a history of success for pool players in Iowa as the winners of the largest Powerball prize claimed here were members of an office pool. One winning ticket was sold, worth $447 million.

The largest Powerball victor in Idaho was Star's Brad Duke.

So now it's even harder to strike it rich with Powerball, leading to fewer chances of big payouts, which in turn rolls over to enormous prizes such as the one Wednesday night.

Selecting numbers: Once you have chosen Powerball or Powerball with Power Play, picking your numbers is easy. Players can purchase tickets to the world's biggest lotteries, including the Mega Million, EuroMillions, the Italian SuperEnalotto, the EuroJackpot and more. "We remind players to always check their tickets carefully for winners after the draw".
