Powerball ticket sales rose sharply across the country.
The $ 630 million jackpot, says the Multi-State Lottery Association, was higher than estimates and driven by the rapidly growing number of people who toppled 2 bucks for a million-to-1 shot at wealth.
In fact, the odds were far worse than that: 1 in 292.2 million, Powerball says.

Wednesday night’s draw was the seventh largest jackpot in Powerball’s history, with a cash value of $ 448.4 million.
