Although last week’s mammoth Mega Millions jackpot is history, the Powerball jackpot continues to grow.

Lottery officials report that Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is up to $535-million dollars to a single winner.

That’s the fifth largest prize ever offered in the multi-state game.

If you take the lump sum payment instead, you will still get a prize of just over $340 million.

Lottery officials remind players to have fun, but to always play responsibly.
In Missouri, you have until 8:59 p.m. Saturday to purchase your Powerball ticket.
