Another Powerball drawing concluded with no jackpot winner on Wednesday. For today, March 19, the Grand Prize gets another bump to $147 million. Many lottery winners choose to take their big prize in a single lump-sum payment, which for this jackpot would be about $97.1 million.
Again in the previous drawing, there were no second-tier winners of $1 million or more. Will the higher jackpot attract more lottery players this weekend, and will one of them hit a major prize? Check back here to find out, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. EST.

The impractical possibilities of tonight’s jackpot prize
With the lump sum option totaling just under $100 million for tonight’s Powerball jackpot, we thought we’d explore what a winner could do with that kind of scratch.
Of course, if you were to win it, there are the responsible steps you should take like getting a lawyer and financial advisors, and investing for the future. But just for fun, here are some less practical ways to spend $100 million.
Buy a Picasso
It’s hard to pinpoint what an exact price would be for an original work by the father of cubism, but a hundred mill should put you in the neighborhood. If you’re interested in the world of art collecting, your winnings could help you start your collection off with a bang.
Build an amusement park in your yard
Roller coasters cost around $8 million to design and build from the ground up. But you’re rich now, so why stop at one? Assuming you’ve got the acreage, you could build yourself 12 of them!
Hire Taylor Swift
Pop singer Taylor Swift charges about $1 million to appear and perform for private events. You could dazzle the Swifties in your life with live Taylor concerts once a week for almost two years!
