Powerball jackpot rolls over to $500M

CHICAGO — The Powerball jackpot has reached more than $300 million after no one matched the winning numbers on Sunday.

The lottery prize reached approximately $301 million. The next Powerball drawing will take place on Wednesday.

The last major Powerball jackpot occurred in February, when the total reached $564 million. But the heightened prize doesn’t increase anyone’s chance of winning.

The chance of matching all six Powerball numbers is one in 175 million.
