Powerball prize now 10th largest after months without winner

Since there weren't any winners on Wednesday's drawing, the Powerball jackpot leaps to $435 million, which would become the 11 largest US lottery jackpot in history.

The lottery has been rolling without a jackpot victor since April 1, despite other players winning more than 66,000 prizes. The odds of winning $1 million - awarded for having all five numbers, without the Powerball - are 1 in 11,688,054. The numbers for the $375 million drawing were 5, 21, 57, 66, 69 and the Powerball was 13.

No one won the Powerball jackpot Wednesday night, but if you bought a Powerball ticket in Dillon, check your ticket - you may have won $50,000. North Carolina has had four Powerball jackpot winners of $74.5 million to $188 million.

The ticket matched five of the six numbers drawn.

- The Powerball jackpot continues to grow after 18 consecutive drawings with no victor.




If the numbers stay the way they are, a cash value payout of Saturday's jackpot would come to $237.1 million.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery game that operates in 44 states, Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Additionally, all winning Powerball tickets must be turned in and redeemed in the state where the member lottery is associated.

The chance of winning Powerball is incredibly small, at 292.2 million to one. The jackpot is now worth $435 million if a victor chooses an annuity payout, or $273.1 million cash if it's paid out in a lump sum.
