Powerball is back in the news with a giant jackpot that's grown to $320 million.
Wednesday night's drawing was the 12th-consecutive with no winner, pushing the jackpot over $250,000 for the third time in less than a year.
Last November, two lucky ticketholders won a $587.5 million prize.
This week's jackpot would net a single winner $198.3 million in cash. Of course, the chances of winning are only one in 170 million.
The next drawing is Saturday night.
Yuma, Ariz., is the closest place to buy a ticket if you live in San Diego. It is not legal to buy one unless you are in a state that participates. California is not participating.
