TOPEKA, Kansas – The Powerball jackpot is on the rise after no one matched all numbers in the September 14 drawing.

The estimated Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night’s drawing is $400 million with a cash option of $223.6 million!

The Powerball jackpot has been on a roll since August 7, when a Minnesota resident and two New Jersey residents shared a $448.4 million jackpot. The record Powerball jackpot was $587.5 million, which was split between winners in Arizona and Missouri on November 28, 2012.

Powerball isn’t the only game offering a large jackpot this week. The Mega Millions jackpot rolled to an estimated $130 million with a cash option of $88.2 million for Tuesday night’s drawing.

The Hot Lotto jackpot rolled to an estimated $1.6 million after Saturday night’s drawing. Although no one hit the jackpot, one lucky ticket purchased in northeast Kansas matched four numbers plus the Hot Ball to win a cash prize worth $3,000!

No one matched all numbers in Saturday night’s Super Kansas Cash drawing. The estimated jackpot for tonight’s drawing is $1,005,000!

Three lucky tickets matched four numbers but not the Cash ball in Saturday night’s drawing to each win $2,000. All three tickets were sold in northeast Kansas.
