Although Wednesday's grand prize would make any victor happy, it falls short of the historic $1.5 billion Powerball lottery in January 2016 - the biggest in history, anywhere on the globe.

After you buy it, you'll want to make sure only you can claim the prize, so the first thing you'll want to do is sign it. She says if she wins the money will go towards helping others. "With it this big, the day of the drawing it will be". Didn't you hear about the Billerica man who won two $1 million prizes in 30 months at the same store?

The last time a Powerball jackpot rose above the $400 million mark was last November - the third time it climbed higher than that figure in 2016 - when it hit $420 million. The odds of winning the jackpot: 1 in 292,291,338. The payout reached a record $1.6 billion - the one and only time it has crossed the billion dollar mark.

That sort of excitement brought waves of new customers to some stores like Wetcher Whistle. Normally, she would sell about 10 or 15.

"We always like to remind people that there are nine ways to win in Powerball", said Lunsford. It's been 19 drawings since there was a victor.

The Powerball ticket matched all five white balls drawn in Saturday's game (3, 7, 9, 31 and 33) but missed the Powerball of 20, falling just short of the $361 million jackpot.

That means the drawing on Wednesday, Feb. 22 will be worth at least $403 million with a cash option of $243.9 million. A single jackpot victor would have the option of spreading out the $435.3 million in even payments over 30 years or taking a lump-sum payment of considerably less.
