Powerball jackpot grows in anticipation of drawing


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Powerball jackpot continues to grow.

Wednesday night’s drawing will be for an estimated $450 million. The drawing was initially set for $400 million, but lottery officials say the surge in ticket sales caused an increase in the jackpot.

This is the sixth largest jackpot of any US lottery game on record and the fourth largest Powerball jackpot.
