Powerball soars to $400 million

A big drawing Wednesday tonight for the multi-state powerball.

The 6th largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history may be awarded tonight as the winning powerball numbers for the 400 million dollar prize was drawn at 9:59 tonight.

The jackpot swelled from $330 million over the weekend when no winning tickets were sold for Saturday's drawing.

The chances of winning are slim, however. The odds of claiming the big prize are 1 in 175 million, the lottery said.
