DRAWING TODAY: $320 Million Powerball Jackpot Could Be YOURS!

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Today could bring a lucky Washingtonian a major boost to get through the week. The Powerball jackpot currently stands at $320 million – the second highest since the game's 2010 debut in Washington State! With that amount of money, one lucky winner could purchase more than 5,000,000 London Summer Olympics memorabilia jackets.

The next drawing takes place this Wednesday at 8 p.m., and Washington is hoping to take home the gold!

With fall just around the corner, Washington's Lottery imagined what else someone could do with the $320 million jackpot.

1. Give WSU football season tickets to the entire population of Spokane County (468,684).

2. Extend Labor Day weekend plans by taking a cruise to Alaska and pay for the entire city of Vancouver to come along!

3. Take the entire population of eastern Washington (1,371,802) to the Gorge to see Dave Matthews Band perform on Labor Day Weekend!

4. Pay an entire year's tuition for all of the students at Eastern Washington University.

Not only could a local resident walk away with big bucks, but the retailer that sells a winning ticket could receive a retail selling bonus up to $50,000. To learn more about Washington's Lottery and for all up-to-date winning numbers, visit www.walottery.com.
