POWERBALL® JACKPOT GROWS TO $280 MILLION
TALLAHASSEE – The jackpot for Wednesday’s POWERBALL® drawing has grown to an estimated $280 million; the largest in the nation. The POWERBALL jackpot has rolled 16 times since the March 21, 2018, drawing, generating more than $19.5 million in contributions to the state’s Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF).
