A staggering $1.73 billion is up for grabs later Wednesday within the second-largest US Powerball jackpot prize in historical past.

The prize elevated from $1.57 billion after there was no winner throughout a drawing Monday night time.

But 4 tickets gained $1 million apiece within the states of California, Indiana, Oregon and Virginia after they matched all 5 white balls, besides the sixth purple ball, in response to Powerball.

“With every ticket purchased, the jackpot grows larger, and so are the funds being raised for good causes supported by U.S. lotteries,” Drew Svitko, Powerball Product group chair and Pennsylvania Lottery govt director, mentioned in a press release.

If somebody wins the jackpot Wednesday, she or he could have the selection between an annuitized prize price an estimated $1.73 billion or a lump sum fee estimated at $756.6 million — each choices are earlier than taxes, it mentioned.

“If the winner selects the annuity option, they will receive one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year,” it added.

The likelihood of matching all six numbers on a single ticket is 1 in 292 million. Tickets price $2 per sport.

A Powerball jackpot price $1.08 billion was gained July 19 on a ticket in California. Since then, there have been 30 consecutive drawings and not using a grand prize winner.

The largest Powerball jackpot was $2.04 billion Nov. 7, 2022 — gained in California.
