The new jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is the 5th-largest in the lottery game’s history.The next chance for someone to get lucky will be Wednesday.

The new $865 million jackpot is for a winner who is paid through an annuity over 29 years. Winners of lottery jackpots usually prefer a lump sum of cash, which for Wednesday’s drawing would be $416.1 million.

The Powerball prize keeps getting more massive because of the inability of anyone to overcome the long odds of 1 in 292.2 million and win the jackpot. To take the top prize, players must match all five white balls and one red Powerball.

Since someone won the prize on 01/01/2024, there have been 38 drawings without a winner.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win at least $1 million.

To play Powerball, you pick six numbers: five numbers between one and 69 for the white balls; and one number between one and 26 for the red Powerball. Selecting all of them correctly gets you the jackpot. You can also pay for the Power Play option, which multiples any winnings earned by two, three, four, five or 10 times the amount, depending on which number is drawn.

How can you increase your odds? You can buy more than one ticket, though you’d have to have purchase 292,201,338 to account for all of the numerical possibilities, which would cost more than winning the jackpot. You have much better odds of winning a small prize:

Jackpot: Five matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 292,201,338
$1 million prize: Five matching numbers: 1 in 11,688,053.52
$50,000 prize: Four matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 913,129.18
$100 prize: Four matching numbers: 1 in 36,525.17
$100 prize: Three matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 14,494.11
$7 prize: Three matching numbers: 1 in 579.76
$7 prize: Two matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 701.33
$4 prize: One matching number with the Powerball: 1 in 91.98
$4 prize: Powerball only: 1 in 38.32
