Powerball Jackpot Soars to Record $600 Million

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — The Powerball jackpot soared to a record $600 million on Friday, according to Powerball’s website.

No one picked all six numbers correctly in Wednesday night’s drawing, when the jackpot was $360 million.

Officials expected the jackpot to keep growing ahead of the next drawing on Saturday.

It was already largest in Powerball history, eclipsing the previous record of $587.5 million from November 2012.

It was the second largest lottery jackpot ever, behind a $600 million Mega Millions jackpot in April 2012.

Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

California joined for the first time in April.

It has accounted for 11 percent of the game’s ticket sale since, officials said, boosting the potential for huge jackpots.

For those wondering how to get in on the buzz, California Lottery officials list their lucky retailers.

The list includes 33 area convenience stores stretching from Ventura through Los Angeles to Riverside and San Bernardino counties that have a history of selling winning tickets.
