The estimated PowerBall amount is up to $252,000,000, or $121.7 million dollars cash. There were no jackpot winners for Saturday’s PowerBall drawing. The next drawing is today, Wednesday, April 21, 2010, and sales are reported as being brisk. One lucky Rhode Islander could win the whole pot, or split the prize money. Either way, the jackpot will make someone very rich. Most winners are excited to say, “You can’t win if you don’t play.”
