BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s drawing continues to grow.

The Multi-State Lottery Association, which operates the game for 45 lotteries including Louisiana’s, said Friday the jackpot climbs to $600 million, the highest ever for the game.

The cash value of the May 18 jackpot is $376.9 million.

Louisiana has had 14 Powerball jackpot winners since joining the game in 1995, most recently in July 2010 with a jackpot of $85.7 million.

The largest Powerball jackpot ever won is $587.5 million in November 2012, which was split between two winning tickets.
