BOSTON (CBS) – If you have $2 handy, you could turn it into a giant pot of cash (with a great deal of luck, of course).

The Powerball jackpot now stands at $250 million for Wednesday night’s drawing.

If the winner wants all the money at once, it’s $156 million.

Each ticket now cost $2, but the consolation prizes are larger.

If you match all five numbers and not the Powerball, you could still win the $1 million second prize.

Powerball is played in most states.
