INDIANAPOLIS (August 2, 2013) -  Saturday's estimated Powerball jackpot has been increased from $290 milllion to $300 million as of noon today.  Multi-State Lottery Officials (MUSL) raised the jackpot estimate as players flocked to stores nationwide to purchase tickets ahead of Saturday night's drawing.
In Indiana, players have until 9:58 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday to purchase their shot at the jackpot. 
Hoosier Lottery retailers have sold a record 38 Powerball jackpot winning tickets over the years.  That's more than any other state - and 11 more wins than the next closest state, Missouri.  
With the recent addition of California to the game, Powerball is now played in 43 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Hoosier Lottery reminds all players to play responsibly. Must be 18 or older to play.  Gambling Addiction Referral Line: 800-994-8448.
