Powerball jackpot swells to a record $425 million

If you are looking for a little extra spending money for the holidays, you may want to consider playing the Powerball Lottery.

Wednesday's jackpot has grown to $425 million after no one won the top prize on Saturday. And the jackpot could grow depending on how many tickets are sold between now and Wednesday.

That's the largest jackpot ever for the multistate game. It comes as the Christmas shopping season gets under way in earnest.

The jackpot has rolled over for a 15th straight time.

Powerball's largest payout to date was $365 million dollars in 2006 to eight co-workers at a Nebraska meat-packing plant.
