Powerball jackpot reaches record $425 million

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV/AP) -

The next time Powerball numbers are drawn, it will be for the largest jackpot in the game's history.

Nobody matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing, so the Powerball jackpot now stands at $425 million.

The next drawing is Wednesday at 7:59 p.m.

Washington's Lottery reports four people in the state matched four of the numbers and the Powerball in Saturday's drawing, winning $10,000 each.

Wednesday's drawing is already the largest in Powerball history and lottery officials said it could still go even higher, because sales pick up in the days leading up to a record drawing.

The previous top Powerball prize was $365 million, won in 2006 by ConAgra Foods workers in Nebraska.
