Update 12:09 a.m. EDT Sept. 14: No one matched all six numbers on Wednesday, meaning the Powerball jackpot climbed to $596 million, lottery officials said.

The next drawing is Saturday. If someone wins that night, 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 $288.2 million before taxes.

There was a Match 5 plus Power Play ticket sold in South Carolina that was worth $2 million. A ticket matching five numbers netted one lucky winner $1 million in Missouri.

Original report: If someone matches all of the numbers in Wednesday’s drawing and selects the annuity option, they will receive one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year. If the winner decides to take the lump sum option of $550 million, the cash value amount will be approximately $266 million before taxes.

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.
