The billion dollar Powerball is still up for grabs after no ticket matched all six numbers, launching the lottery to a grand prize of $1.09 billion for Wednesday’s drawing.

The winning numbers from the Wednesday night drawing are: 11, 62, 65, 38, 41. Powerball: 15.

This is the game’s fourth-largest jackpot in the game’s history, according to a press release from Powerball.

Both prize options are before taxes. 

If the winner selects the annuity option, they will receive one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by five percent each year.
