Check your Powerball ticket before rushing out to buy that Mother's Day card Sunday morning.

You might be able to give Mom that card, and the accompanying CVS to go with it.

The jackpot for Saturday night's Powerball drawing is up to $270 million after no one hit the winning numbers Wednesday.

The grand prize could wind up even higher, depending on sales.

According to the Powerball website, 1,206,401 winners took home $14,833,887 in secondary prizes Wednesday night.

The winning numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing were 21-22-26-30-57 and Powerball number 27.
