Lottery players get another chance at a multi-million dollar jackpot on Wednesday.

Lottery officials said no one in Ohio or any other state won the last powerball jackpot. The top prize now increases to about $425(m) for the drawing, Wednesday.

"With the jackpot the highest its ever been we’re sure in the next couple of days we will be very busy selling Powerball tickets," said owner of Mother Tucker’s Jim Pitcock. "Not too many so far, but as it gets closer to the drawing they’ll be a lot more people coming in for them."

Pitcock offers some advice to those looking to play those lucky numbers.

"Any numbers you could imagine I would play," said Pitcock. "If you don’t play them and you’re thinking of them I would play them because it’s going to be a long life to live missing out on that 425 million."

Tickets for the Powerball jackpot are $2.00 a piece and you can buy an Power Play for a dollar which multiples your winnings up to a million dollars as long as it’s not the jackpot.
