INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 19, 2014) – The jackpot sits at about $400 million ahead of Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing.

Indiana has an impressive track record, leading the nation in Powerball wins with 38. The largest Powerball jackpot ever won in Indiana was a $314 million ticket purchased at a Richmond Speedway in August 2007.

Powerball tickets are $2 and Mega Millions tickets are $1. Both can be purchased at more than 4,000 retailers around Indiana. Both games also offer multiplier options for an additional $1 per wager.
