MILWAUKEE — The Powerball lottery jackpot is swelling in advance of Wednesday night’s drawing. The current jackpot is $430 million ($273.4 million cash value). But as it has in the past, that could edge north ever so slightly before the lottery balls are dropped.

Powerball costs $2 per play; $3 with the Power Play option. The odds of winning are extreme — one in 292 million.  Powerball drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday at 9:59 p.m. CDT.
