UPDATED at noon: Lottery officials now estimate Wednesday's jackot at $500 milion.
For the last two months, no one has been lucky to win the Powerball lottery.
So Wednesday's estimated jackpot is $500 million, and likely to go even higher as a buying frenzy has begun.
At $500 million, it would be the largest jackpot in Powerball history.
Powerball is pulled Wednesdays and Fridays. The Powerball lottery is played in 42 states, including Massachusetts and all six New England states.
According to Powerball, the odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 175 million. The odds of getting all 5 numbers and not the Powerball, earning $1 million, is 1 in 5 million.
