The holder can choose between an annuity of $473.1 million spread in 30 graduated payments over 29 years or a lump sum payment of $283.3 million (both not counting taxes).
The winning numbers were 11, 36, 61, 62 and 68, with a Powerball number of 4.
Smaller prizes Wednesday included $1 million for one ticket sold in Indiana. That ticket matched drawn numbers for the five white balls but not the red Powerball.
Wednesday’s jackpot win doesn’t crack the game’s all-time top 10, which starts at $564.1 million (February 2015) and is crowned by $1.586 billion (January 2016).
