Powerball prize is now $422 million

Posted: Updated:

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over 22 times since it was reset in May. 

This jackpot is the 8th largest in the game's history and the 11th-biggest lottery prize ever in the U.S. Wednesday's drawing comes about 2-1/2 months after a $429.6 million winning Powerball ticket was sold in New Jersey and two weeks after someone in Indiana won a $540 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot 

Tonight's drawing is planned for 10:00 central time.

A winning ticket consisting of all six numbers will be worth an estimated payout of $422 million if spread over 30 years, or the winner may opt for a lump-sum payment of $291.8 million before federal taxes.

Tonight's drawing is planned for 10:00 central time.
