Hours before Wednesday evening's drawing, the jackpot surged to the ninth-largest prize in Powerball history. The jackpot at the time of the drawing was announced as $707.2 million prize.

The winning numbers for Wednesday's jackpot drawing were 4-11-38-51-68 and Powerball 5, with a Power Play 3.

A lucky player in Texas is worth $2 million. There’s also one ticket in California worth $1 million dollars.

Powerball Product Group Chair Drew Svitko says:

This Powerball jackpot is climbing the charts and it’s anyone’s guess whether our next big winner will be made in 2023 or the New Year. This is a fun time to get into the game, especially over the holidays when you can dream big with family and friends.

There has been no Powerball winner since October 11.
