The Powerball jackpot is almost at $1 billion for the second time this year, as Wednesday’s grand prize went winnerless, with the total now standing at $925 million.
The last person to win the lottery’s jackpot was a California player in July, who took home the $1.08 billion prize.
Wednesday’s numbers were 1, 7, 46, 47, and 63, with a Powerball of 7.
While no one took home the jackpot, four tickets, sold in California, Kansas, Maryland, and New York, were able to match the first five numbers and win $1 million each, according to Powerball.
The estimated $925 million jackpot for Saturday will be the game’s fourth largest in its 35-year history, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The top three include this year’s winner from July.
If someone beats the 1 in 292.2 million odds, they will have the choice of taking a lump sum payment estimated at $432.4 million before taxes or the full amount in an annuitized option that’s paid out over 29 years.
