The jackpot for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing has soared to $500 million, according to the Michigan Lottery.
No one has won Powerball’s biggest prize since Nov. 4.
The biggest jackpot was a $656 million Mega Millions prize won in 2012. The last time Powerball had grown this large was in February 2015, when three winners split a $564.1 million prize.
Powerball is played in 44 states as well as the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
