Powerball Winner for Feb. 7 Worth $380 Million

The Powerball lottery jackpot is making a move toward record territory. And tickets are selling so well that the prize has increased by $20 million since the last estimate on Thursday.

Lottery jackpots start growing even faster once they get past $300 million. One more rollover puts this week's grand prize about two more drawings away from a half a million dollars if there is no winner on Saturday.

The Powerball website reports that the estimated annuity jackpot for the Powerball drawing of Saturday, February 7 has now climbed to $380 million. The lump sum payout has now cleared a quarter of a million dollars, at $256.8 million. Winning Powerball numbers for February 4 were 24, 36, 51, 52, and 56, and the Powerball was 22.
