The US Powerball Lotto estimated jackpot value has been pushed up to $550 million in anticipation for tonight’s 2012/94 draw. Stronger than anticipated ticket sales earlier in the week caused the jackpot to increase from its original value of $425 million to $500 million on Tuesday.
The US Powerball Lottery jackpot could continue to grow as the results drawing nears. Additionally, there is a chance that the final jackpot value posted after the six winning numbers are randomly selected will be higher than the estimated jackpot. This was the case in March 2012, when the $640 million Mega Millions jackpot increased to its final value of $656 million after the draw.
