Undated (KROC AM News) - The grand prize for Wednesday night’s Powerball game has grown to $450 million, with a cash value of $275 million (before taxes).

The $50 million increase from the earlier grand prize was caused by a surge in ticket sales, which could lead to an even larger jackpot by the time Wednesday night’s drawing is held.  

The current jackpot is the fourth largest in Powerball history and the 6th largest lottery grand prize in U.S. history.
