The estimated jackpot is $420.9 million. The lump sum payment before taxes will be more than $243 million.
The ticket holder has not yet come forward to claim the prize, which ranks 12th among all U.S. lottery prizes and is the ninth largest Powerball prize.
The winner has 180 days from the date of the drawing, about six months, to claim the jackpot and decide whether to take the grand prize in 30 annual payments that increase over time or in one lump sum, which is always substantially less but will be more than the $243.8 million calculated for what was expected to be a $403 million prize. The jackpot jumped with higher-than-anticipated ticket sales.
Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance of winning.
