Where to Buy Your $500 Million Lottery Ticket

Maryland Lottery officials announced the increase Tuesday morning for the drawing. There are plenty of local places to grab a ticket.

UPDATE (2:05 p.m.)—The jackpot for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing was already the largest in the game's history at $425 million but lottery officials announced that the prize pool had increased on Tuesday morning.

Wednesday's drawing will now be for a $500 million jackpot with a $327 million cash option, according to an email from Maryland Lottery spokeswoman Erica Palmisano. The news comes after 15 straight Powerball drawings without a winner.

Lottery officials said there have been two Powerball winners in our state since Maryland started to participate in January 2010.

The last huge Powerball jackpot and previous record-holder—a $365 million prize—was claimed in Nebraska back in 2006.

The next drawing will take place on Wednesday at 11:22 p.m. on WBAL-TV, Channel 11 and will be rebroadcast on MPT. Powerball is a lottery game played in 42 states including Maryland.

The big jackpot comes eight months after the multi-state Mega Millions lottery had a record $656 million jackpot shared by three winners.
