And some say with the increased sales the jackpot could hit a half a billion!
The first Powerball drawing of the year yielded no winner- which means a HUGE jackpot for the next drawing on Wednesday.
Powerball, which is played in 44 states (including Illinois), two U.S. territories and Washington, D.C., is currently worth $244.8 million if a winner opts for an immediate cash payout instead of annual payments over 30 years, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.
