iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing has soared to an estimated $422 million thanks to nearly three months without a winner of the big prize.
But that could change. The numbers drawn Wednesday were 10, 47, 50, 65, and 68. The Powerball is 24.
If anyone matches the five balls and red Powerball in Wednesday’s drawing, it will be the game’s first jackpot winner since May 7.

The chance of winning the big prize is 292.2 million-to-1, according to The Associated Press.
A jackpot winner could opt for a $422 million annuity paid out over 29 years or a $291 million lump sum. The prize would rank as the nation’s 11th largest.
The big Powerball prize comes less than three weeks after a player in Indiana won a $536 million Mega Millions jackpot.
