Powerball players will have the chance to win the fourth-largest lottery jackpot ever in the U.S. when the next drawing is held Wednesday night.
The jackpot soared to a whopping $750 million after Saturday’s drawing yielded no winners. It marked the 25th consecutive draw where no ticket hit all six numbers, lottery officials said.
The numbers in Wednesday' drawing were 16-20-37-44-62, with a Powerball of 12 and Power Play of 3.
No jackpot-winning tickets were sold in California, although one ticket sold in San Mateo and another sold in San Jose matched five of the six numbers.
A ticket sold in Wisconsin won the jackpot, lottery officials said.
In fact, there hasn’t been a Powerball jackpot winner yet this year, with the last one coming in late December.
At an estimated $750 million, a single winner would have the option to take a single lump sum payment of about $465.5 million, according to a Powerball news release.
“There are a lot of people imagining what they could do with a $750 million Powerball jackpot this week,” Powerball Product Group Chairman David Barden said in the release. “Where else could you win three quarters of a billion dollars for the price of a cup of coffee?”
There have only been three jackpots larger than the current one up for grabs, including the record $1.586 billion one in January 2016. A couple who purchased their ticket in Chino Hills were among the three winners who shared the prize.
The second-largest -- a staggering $1.537 billion Mega Millions prize -- was won last October by an unidentified woman in South Carolina.
And at $750 million, Wednesday’s jackpot is just slightly less than the $758.7 million won by a Massachusetts mother back in 2017.
Powerball is played in in 44 states, plus Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 apiece and the winning numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 7:59 p.m. PT.
