MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - Jackpot fever just rose a notch higher with the announcement that the estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing has risen from $400 million to $425 million, the third largest jackpot in the game’s history.

With a jackpot this size, ticket sales quickly accelerate and the Tennessee Education Lottery is encouraging those who want a chance to win to avoid the late rush by not waiting until the last minute to purchase a ticket.

Tickets for the big drawing must be purchased by 8:59 p.m. on Wednesday.

“The big jackpots are always a source of great fun and intense interest, creating excitement throughout the state and beyond,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Lottery, which has funded over 700,000 scholarships and grants to Tennessee students since inception.

“When a jackpot gets this high, sales rise even more quickly, driving the jackpot upward, all of which is a tremendous boost for the education programs funded by the Lottery. That said, we encourage players to get their tickets early, have fun and please play responsibly. It only takes one to win,” Hargrove said.
Powerball is a popular drawing-style lottery game sold in 45 jurisdictions across the United States.
