So it’s time to resume your lottery dream because Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is in that rarefied-air range of $400 million.
You know, the dream: A big house. Or an island getaway. Maybe a fancy foreign sports car. Or all of ’em.
With no tickets Saturday matching all five numbers — 5, 7, 23, 35 and 39 — plus the Powerball of 11, the jackpot Wednesday is $422 million, lottery officials said.
That marks an increase of $32 million from Saturday’s grand prize.
It also is the seventh largest jackpot in Powerball history and the 11th largest in the history of U.S.-based multistate games, according to lottery records.
The lump sum cash payoff is worth $291 million before taxes.
Oh, and dream on. Because the chances of winning the big prize? It’s 1 in 292.2 million.
