The Powerball jackpot estimated at $500 million has been won by three tickets in North Carolina, Puerto Rico and Texas.
If the jackpot stands at the $500 million estimated on February 11, it would be the fifth-largest lottery prize in US history.
No one had won the Powerball jackpot for more than two months, so the prize grew gradually from its $40 million starting point. That figure is now listed on the website as the current jackpot for the next drawing.
The winning numbers in Wednesday’s drawing were: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54 and the Powerball 19.
