America’s newest billionaire could be made Wednesday night.
The third-largest Powerball jackpot in the game’s history will be up for grabs after Monday’s drawing had no big winner.
The prize, worth a total of about $1.2 billion in annual payments or $551.7 million in a one-time payout, is also the seventh-largest among all U.S. lottery jackpots, Powerball said in a news release.
The Powerball jackpot hasn’t been claimed in nearly three months, when it again was over $1 billion.
The July 19 drawing produced a winning ticket in California that was worth up to $1.08 billion
“Since then, there have been 32 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner,” the release said.
The largest Powerball jackpot, about $2.04 billion, was purchased in Altadena last year by Edwin Castro.
Since then, Castro has reportedly used some of his winnings to purchase luxury homes in the L.A. area.
