The largest jackpot in US history shot up to $1.5 billion on Tuesday, driven by record sales as people flock across state lines and international borders to buy tickets, a lottery executive said.To win the jackpot, a ticket holder has to match all numbers on five white balls and one red ball selected at the twice weekly Powerball draw -- next due on Wednesday at 10:59 pm (0359 GMT Thursday).At the last draw on Saturday, 25 people matched the first five numbers -- winning $1 million each -- and three others had paid a bonus netting them $2 million each but no one claimed the then $950 million jackpot.
