UNDATED (WTVB) - There’s been a rollover so let the lines begin at lottery outlets in Michigan and 42 other states. The Powerball jackpot moves to an estimated record 475 million dollars after there was no big winner in Wednesday night's drawing.

The cash option is worth just over 300-million dollars.  The jackpot has been growing since a New Jersey man won a 338-million-dollar prize in late March. The game is also played in Washington, DC and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The next drawing is Saturday night. By the way, there was a million dollar winner in Michigan from yesterday’s Powerball drawing with a ticket sold in Blanchard in Isabella County matching five numbers. The 475-million dollar prize ranks as the second largest in Powerball history behind the 587.5 million dollar jackpot from 2012.
