Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night is up to $422 million.

If anyone matches the five balls and red Powerball in Wednesday night's drawing, it will be the game's first jackpot winner since May 7.

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 chance of winning the Powerball is 292.2 million-to-1.

The big Powerball prize comes less than three weeks after a player in Indiana won a $536 million Mega Millions jackpot.
