2/21/2017 8:44:51 AM

COLUMBIA, SC (February 21, 2017) – Will Wednesday night’s tenth largest Powerball® jackpot drawing crown the game’s first jackpot winner of 2017?

We’ll find out soon enough if someone is $403 million richer.

It’s been a year since Powerball® captivated the nation with a $1.5 billion prize. 2016 went on to deliver three more impressive $400+ million jackpot wins.

The jackpot has rolled 19 times since it was last won.

If no one wins Wednesday night’s millions, the jackpot will loom even larger for Saturday.

South Carolinians looking to take a chance on the $403 million jackpot with a cash payout of $243 million, must purchase $2 Powerball® tickets by 9:59 p.m. for Wednesday’s 10:59 p.m. drawing.

Good luck, South Carolina!

Please, play responsibly.

Jackpot odds are 1 in 293 million.
