If you want to be an instant millionaire, you need to have some relatives living in Indiana.

One ticket sold in the Hoosier State won Wednesday’s $435.3 million Powerball lottery jackpot. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $243.9 million.

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot was the largest since one winning ticket was sold in at a Hannaford supermarket in Raymond, New Hampshire for a $487 million jackpot on July 30, 2016

There had been 18 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner since a ticket sold in Shelby, Delaware, matched all six numbers in the $121 million Powerball jackpot drawing on December 17

Wednesday's numbers were 10, 13, 28, 52, 61 with 2 as the Powerball. The multiplier was two times.

There were a total of 197,680 winning tickets in Florida for Wednesday's drawing. No tickets sold in the state matched all five. Nine tickets matched four numbers and the Powerball and are each worth $50,000.

The Powerball jackpot now resets to $40 million for Saturday’s drawing because a winning ticket was selected. The deadline to buy tickets in Florida is 10:00 p.m. EST.
