MILWAUKEE — After months without a winner, lottery players will have another shot at a Powerball jackpot that has soared to a massive $768 million — the fourth-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night are as follows:
Although the prize has grown steadily since the last jackpot winner on Dec. 26, the odds of matching the five white balls and single Powerball remain a staggering one in 292.2 million.
The estimated figure refers to the annuity option, paid over 29 years. Nearly all grand prize winners opt for the cash prize.
Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
