Jackpot jumps to $835M

Update 12:08 p.m. EDT Sept. 26: The Powerball jackpot increased to $835 million when no one matched all of the numbers. The amount remains the fourth-largest in the promotion’s history but is moving closer to becoming the fourth Powerball prize to top $1 billion.

If someone wins the big prize on Wednesday, they will have two options: An annuity, in which the winner receives one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year; or the lump sum option. Choosing the second option will make the cash value amount approximately $390.4 million before taxes.

While there were no grand prize winners, three tickets in Florida and one in Oregon matched five numbers, giving their owners a $1 million prize, lottery officials said.

Original report: The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was on July 19, when a $1.08 billion ticket was sold in California. That was the third-largest Powerball jackpot in the promotion’s history, lottery officials said.

Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets, which cost $2 per play, are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 292.2 million, according to Powerball.com.
