Powerball jackpot soars to $400 million


(AP) — The biggest Powerball jackpot in more than two years has climbed to $400 million, giving plenty of people big dreams of how they would spend the windfall.

No one matched all the numbers for Saturday night’s drawing, which was worth $334 million. The next drawing, on Wednesday, will be worth at least $400 million.

The sixth-largest prize in Powerball history was $339.4 million in 2013, and it was claimed by someone in South Carolina.

The multistate game tickets are sold in 44 states and the District of Columbia.
