Powerball jackpot hits $400M

The estimated jackpot for tonight's Powerball drawing has jumped to $400 million or $227.8 million in cash value.

This is the largest Powerball jackpot since August 7, 2013, when 3 winning tickets split a $448.4 million grand prize, according to the Colorado Lottery. The highest Powerball jackpot ever was $590 million last May.

No one came close to winning the jackpot in Colorado on Saturday. 57 people got four numbers, but no one got five numbers, let alone five numbers plus the powerball.
