LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -- Winning numbers: 44, 62, 20, 37, 16. Mega ball: 12. Powerplay: 3X

Right now, the jackpot is at $750 million.

The pot has been growing since the last time someone bought a winning Powerball ticket in December 2018.

The jackpot is currently the fourth-largest U.S. lottery prize in history.

Lottery winners choose between receiving their winnings in an annuity — with payments over 30 years or a single lump sum payment. The lump sum on Wednesday’s Powerball drawing is $465.5 million.

The odds of actually winning the top Powerball prize this week are roughly one in 292 million, according to Powerball.
