$500 Million Powerball Jackpot: Where to Play in Newton

Massachusetts is one of 42 states that offer the lottery game; find Newton retailers and tips on how to play here.

For the last two months, no one has been lucky enough to win the Powerball lottery. Wednesday's estimated jackpot is now $500 million and likely to go even higher as a buying frenzy has begun.

At $500 million, it would be the largest jackpot in Powerball history.

Powerball is pulled Wednesdays and Fridays. The Powerball lottery is played in 42 states, including Massachusetts and all six New England states.

According to Powerball, the odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 175 million. The odds of getting all 5 numbers and not the Powerball, earning $1 million, is 1 in 5 million.

Still looking to buy a ticket? There are plenty of lottery locations in Newton, including Silver Lake Package Store, Piccadilly Market (Newton Centre), Oakley Spa (Newtonville), Highland Wine & Spirits, Corner Mini Mart, Upper Falls Variety, Keyes Pharmacy (Auburndale) and Star Market.

You can find the full list of Newton locations selling Powerball tickets using this map on the Mass Lottery's website.

Don't dawdle; you have until 9:50 p.m. Wednesday to get into tonight's drawing, which takes place at 11:20 p.m.

You might get lucky here in Newton; earlier this month, Upper Falls Variety sold a $1 million winning scratch ticket.
