The jackpot for Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot is now $320 million. That's the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history.

"People start getting interested in the great big prize when it is at $100 million. The media gets interested around $200 million. I think everyone is interested when it gets above $300 million. We expect to sell a lot of tickets today," said Michael Jones, superintendent of Illinois Lottery.
