Powerball Jackpot Reaches $260 Million

Last updated on Wednesday, August 19, 2009

(UNDATED) - The Powerball Jackpot has reached a quarter-billion dollars, and Indiana lottery players can perhaps be forgiven for feeling that money has their name on it.

Powerball has averaged a little more than one grand prize winner a month since its creation in 1992.

36 of those winners, one in every six, have hailed from Indiana, more than any other state.

Your odds of winning the Powerball haven't changed: they're still 1 in about 195-million.
