Update 11:54 p.m. EDT Sept. 18: There was no grand prize winner in Monday’s drawing, kicking the 10th-largest jackpot in Powerball history to $672 million, according to the Powerball website.

The next drawing will be on Wednesday night. If someone wins the grand prize that night, they will have two options: An annuity, in which the winner receives one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year; or the lump sum option. Choosing the second option will make the cash value amount approximately $320.5 million before taxes.

Original report: The last time someone won the Powerball jackpot was on July 19, when a $1.08 billion ticket was sold in California. That was the third-largest Powerball jackpot in the promotion’s history, lottery officials said.

Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets, which cost $2 per play, are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 292.2 million, according to Powerball.com.
