Powerball jackpot hits $236 million

Posted: Updated:
MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

How would you feel about a little extra cash? How about $236 million?

That’s the jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball lottery.

Think it can’t happen to you? But 10 Michigan players have won the game’s $1 million prize in 2016.

The last player in the Great Lakes State to win the Powerball jackpot was Julie Leach, of Three Rivers. Leach won the game’s $310.5 million jackpot on Sept. 30, 2015.

If a Michigan player win’s tonight’s $236 million jackpot, it would be the third-largest Powerball prize won in the state. On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot. Lawson’s jackpot holds the record for the largest Lottery prize ever won in Michigan.

If you win tonight’s jackpot, the cash option is about $156 million.

You can get the results tonight on TV5 news at 11.
