INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)- Powerball players, get out your tickets! The jackpot has risen to one of the largest in Powerball history.

The jackpot has increased to about $500 million. The projected winnings haven’t been this high since February 2015.

The major increase is due to the quick nationwide sales that have prompted a $50 million midday increase for the past two days.

Unless the winnings continue to grow after Wednesday, this jackpot will be the fourth largest in Powerball history. The largest prize was in May 2013, when the winner took home $590 million.

As of Tuesday morning, the odds of winning the top Powerball sum were 1 in 292 million.
