Powerball jackpot climbs to at least $359M

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Here’s a novel way to stuff a Thanksgiving turkey: $359 million.

That’s how much is at stake in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing after no one claimed the top prize in Saturday’s pick.

There was one person who did match the first five numbers in the drawing.

That lucky person won $1 million and is somewhere in Michigan.

This week’s Powerball jackpot will be the highest since July.

If the winner would rather take a one-time payout the drawing carries an estimated $219.6 million cash option prize.

This Powerball drawing will be the 19th since Sept. 17, when a winner in Georgia grabbed a $246.8 million prize.
