Powerball Jackpot Nears $3 million

The US Powerball jackpot rolled over again on Saturday so the next draw already boasts and incredible $284 million jackpot.

Powerball players in eight states managed to match five numbers in the last draw and won $1 million each, but none of them successfully matched the Powerball so the big win was saved for another day.

Powerball is a multi-state game with draws on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The game has a minimum jackpot of $40 million, but the present jackpot is eight times that amount so a last minute buying frenzy could push it even higher. The next draw is on Wednesday night at 22:59 (EST).
