Total prize winners for the drawing were 4,754,594 and eight ticket holders Matched 5 main numbers, which means they are $1 million richer.

The Powerball jackpot has not been this large since the record-breaking draw, when three lucky ticket holders landed $1.586 billion on Wednesday January 13th, 2016. The winners were from Tennessee, California and Florida. They received a total of $528.8 million each before taxes. 

Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $650 million with a cash value of $411.7 million. Tickets are available for authorized retailers or players can pick their numbers online. Players have been reminded by lottery officials to spare enough time to buy tickets, as participating retailers are expected to be busy on the run up to the draw.
