DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ Another record lottery jackpot is up for grabs.

With no winner Wednesday, the multistate Powerball jackpot jumped to $365 million for Saturday's drawing, the largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

The previous record for a U.S. lottery was $363 million in the Big Game, the forerunner of Mega Millions. It was won by two ticket holders in Illinois and Michigan in 2000. The last Powerball record was $340 million, won by an Oregon family in October.

Powerball tickets are sold in 28 states, along with the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
