A lottery official said late Wednesday that the jackpot increased to $587 million by the time of the drawing, making the cash option $379.8 million.

The drawing Wednesday night for the Multi-State Lottery Association's prize followed 16 consecutive drawings that produced no top winner, boosting the Powerball to the second-largest potential lottery payout in U.S. history.
