Powerball/Virginia LotteryThe muti-state Powerball lottery is expected to climb above $300 million by Wednesday night’s drawing. That’s the largest jackpot in almost than a year, Powerball officials said.

Powerball estimates that Wednesday’s prize — should someone guess all the correct numbers plus the Powerball number — will be $317 million, making it the 11th-largest Powerball jackpot ever. No one has won the Powerball since early December.

Before the latest prize, Powerball’s last major jackpot was in February 2014, when it was $425 million.

You have until 9:58 p.m. Wednesday to get your ticket. But don;t quit your day job yet – the Virginia Lottery says your odds of winning it all are about 1 in 175 million.
