JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

If you plan to buy a Powerball ticket Wednesday, better do it before 9 p.m.

Bishop Woosley, director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, said players have until 8:59 p.m. to purchase their tickets.

Those still in line at that time might not be able to purchase a ticket, he said.

“Best advice: get your tickets now for tonight’s drawing,” he said. “Don’t wait until the last minute.”

This Powerball jackpot run began on Nov. 15. The game has not had a jackpot prizewinner in the last 17 drawings.

As of 4:45 p.m., the prize is worth $500 million. Those opting for cash will receive $306 million.

The drawing will take place at 9:59 p.m.
