The estimated annuity value of the jackpot in the Powerball Lottery has been raised to $400 million for the next drawing, scheduled for Wednesday night.

No one matched all numbers, including the Powerball number, in Saturday night’s $330 million drawing.  One player who purchased a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all of the first five numbers drawn, but not the Powerball number, and will win $1,000,000.

Game officials say the one-time cash value of the Wednesday jackpot is currently estimated at $227.8 million.

Meanwhile, the estimated annuity jackpot for Tuesday’s MegaMillions Lottery drawing is currently listed at $154 million, and the prize’s cash value is estimated at $84.8 million.  The top prize which may be claimed by a player who purchased a ticket in Pennsylvania for last Friday’s drawing is $15,000.
