Powerball jackpot reaches $475 million

Posted: Updated:

What was once the seventh-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history has climbed to the number 3 spot.

The Powerball lottery grew from $360 million to an estimated $475 million overnight after none of the tickets sold for Wednesday's drawing matched all six numbers drawn.

A single winner who opts for the cash payment would collect an estimated $302.4 million.

The prize is shadowed only by the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot split between two tickets in November, and the $640 million Mega Millions jackpot shared among three winning tickets in March 2012.

The numbers drawn Wednesday are 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and the Powerball 32.
