Numbers drawn for $425 million Powerball jackpot
Regina Jeffers prepares to give a customer $50 in Powerball
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $425 million in time for the latest drawing.
The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 1, 17, 35, 49, 54 and a Powerball of 34. It wasn't immediately clear if anyone matched all the winning numbers.
Odds of winning it all are 1 in about 175 million.
The drawing followed several consecutive drawings that produced no top winner, boosting the jackpot to one of the largest in U.S. history. But it's still far from the record.
The nation's biggest lottery prize was a $656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot won in March 2012. The biggest Powerball jackpot was a $590.5 million prize won last May.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
