The recent streak of Powerball wins continued on Wednesday’s drawing, when another player matched five balls for a $1 million prize. More exciting for today’s lottery hopefuls is the ever-growing jackpot prize, now topping $400 million after 34 weeks with no winner. The lump sum cash option totals $292 million before taxes.

Another Top Jackpot This Christmas

This Christmas Day drawing marks the third time this year the jackpot has reached $400 million, which would make it the third-highest jackpot of the year if someone wins it. Two jackpots this year made Powerball’s list of the top 10 highest jackpots of all time.

In January this year, a MD player hit the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot of all time, taking home a $731.1 million win. Narrowly missing the fourth-place spot, the next biggest winner this year won $699 million to come in at No. 5.

The current jackpot run won’t make that list before the year ends, but it’s on track to crack the top ten if it rolls into next year. It would need to reach about $560 million to make the list. Will we see a big winner this year, or will it take until the new year to see a historical jackpot?
