Tonight's Powerball jackpot reaches $116 million
With just a few hours to go until the Powerball draw takes place the jackpot is now estimated at $116,000,000.
Sources are reporting that the Powerball jackpot is being boosted by the recent entry of California to the ticket pool, representing 12% of the US population, making the jackpots grow more quickly.
California has already set the record of selling $8 million worth of tickets in just a few days. Ticket sales start flying when the jackpot breaks $100 million with a jump last seen of nearly an extra $270 million in just a few days.
Tickets can be purchased for tonight’s draw in local convenience stores or online at The Lotter – why queue when you can purchase from the comfort of your home.
