America’s prestigious Powerball lottery has seen its jackpot roll since a single player in California picked up $110 million on Saturday 1st August, meaning that Wednesday’s top prize will now be worth $185 million. This is the biggest the jackpot has been since Maria Herrera of Arizona picked up $188.9 million on Wednesday 3rd June, although she opted to take the cash option of $119.9 million.
Although $185 million would be a fantastic prize for anybody to bag, the jackpot has some way to go before it beats Wednesday 11th February’s $564.1 million bounty, shared by players in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas.
