(WBNG Binghamton) The Powerball jackpot has never been higher. Matching five numbers and the Powerball could net you $425 million.
This is the first time that the game's jackpot has been more than $400 million, according to the New York Lottery.
The current game started at $40 million dollars on October 6. Since then, the jackpot has rolled over 15 times.
The previous largest prize was in 2006 when eight people in Nebraska split a $365 million pot.
To win, players have to match five numbers from 1-59 and a Powerball number from 1-35. The odds of winning it all? Longer than one in 175 million.
Your odds of matching all five numbers are significantly better--about 1 in 5 million--but doing so only nets you $1 million.
A $425 million dollar jackpot has a cash payout of $278 million dollars, according to the Powerball website.
You can purchase your ticket until 9 p.m. Wednesday.
You can watch the drawing Wednesday live at 11 p.m. on WBNG.
