Schenectady, NY (WIBX) - If you didn't think you could buy everything you wanted with $425 million dollars, you're in luck.

The Powerball Jackpot has been increased to $500 million because of increased sales across the 44 participating states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

For those matching only the first five numbers, the winnings still aren't bad since you walk away with $1 million dollars.

Tickets for the drawing are on sale until 9 p.m. Wednesday.
