The one-time cash payout option is an estimated $497.3-million.

It’s the fifth largest jackpot in U.S. history.

It has been nearly three months since anyone won Powerball. The odds of winning tonight 1 in 292 million.

The First State still hasn’t had a Powerball jackpot winner since December 2016 when a winning ticket worth nearly $122 million was sold at a Selbyville-area gas station.
