Three people matched five numbers to win $1 million, but those tickets were sold in Washington, California and Ohio.

The payout is the largest in almost a year and the fifth largest in the game's 15-year history, according to lottery officials. It began April 28 and rolled over 30 times before the winning ticket was purchased.

A ticket sold in IL matched all six numbers, winning the grand prize amount. If you weren't the big victor, you still have another chance to cash in on a huge prize.

I don't typically play Powerball, but whenever the jackpots get super high I (like everyone else on the planet) head to the store to grab a ticket or two. That jackpot has been building since June 10. "Winners have one year from the original drawing date to claim a prize".

The odds of winning a jackpot were abysmal - one in 258.9 million for Mega Millions, and one in 292.2 million for Powerball. What's more, if the chances against winning one are silly, the chances of winning both are basically insane squared - around one out of 76 quadrillion, or 76 took after by 15 zeros. Saturday's Powerball jackpot was estimated at $356 million after no one won the big prize on Wednesday. They spent simply finished $80 billion on lottery amusements a year ago, as per the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries. That's more than on movies, video games, books, music and sports tickets - combined.
