Powerball fever is heated again, thanks to a lottery jackpot approaching $ 300 million.
Here's Wednesday's winning numbers:
27-49-50-51-52, Powerball: 02, PowerPlay: 2X
The estimated jackpot is $ 282 million. The lump sum before tax will be about $ 171 million. If there is no jackpot winner, the amount will be bigger for the next drawing.
The jackpot has climbed since December 26 when a New York man won $ 298.3 million in prize money.
Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
A $ 2 ticket gives you a 292.2 million chance to join the Powerball Masters Hall.
