ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Have you ever dream of being rich? How about $250 million dollars rich?

That’s what the Powerball jackpot is for Wednesday night’s drawing.

It is the third largest Powerball jackpot Florida and Tampa Bay have seen. The largest was back in June of 2010 for $260 million.

If you haven’t bought a Powerball ticket in a while, you’re in for a surprise. The the cost of playing has doubled in price. It will now cost $2 to play instead of one dollar and a $5 dollar quick pick will now set you back $10.

If one person hits the jackpot tonight, they could take home a check for a cool $156 million after taxes.
