Powerball jackpot hits $435 million before Saturday’s drawing

It’s time again to start thinking about which private island you’ll buy as the Powerball jackpot has grown to almost half-a-billion dollars.

The current jackpot sits at $435 million ahead of Saturday’s drawing, but that number can always rise.

Of course, the numbers are not close (yet) to the record $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot back won with 3 tickets back in 2016, but it is not too early to dream.

If the numbers stay the way they are, a cash value payout of Saturday’s jackpot would come to $237.1 million.

As always, you can watch the Powerball drawing on Local 10.
