     How does a half-billion dollars sound?
     The record Powerball jackpot is now even bigger. 
     Powerball officials say they've boosted the jackpot for Wednesday's drawing to $550 million. 
     Virginia Lottery spokesman John Hagerty tells WFLS News that a single winner choosing the cash payout will take home more than $327 million before taxes. 
     The jackpot is the largest ever for the Powerball game and the second largest lottery jackpot of all time, eclipsed only by the $656 million Mega Millions record set in March.
