Due to strong sales, the Powerball jackpot for Saturday night has been increased to $380 million

            “This is the sixth highest jackpot ever offered in the game,” said May Scheve Reardon, executive director of the Missouri Lottery. “If one person wins and chooses to take the cash, that person would receive $256.8 million. That’s incredible!”
            Reardon added that players should keep a proper perspective when playing for big jackpot prizes and always play within their means.
“It only takes one ticket to win,” she said.
            Players in Missouri have until 8:59 p.m. Saturday night to buy a ticket for the drawing. They should always sign their tickets immediately after purchasing and keep them in a safe place until they can check them.
