Powerball jackpot grows to $400 million

SAN JOSE, Calif. (BCN/AP) - The next Powerball winner will have a chance to claim one of the game's 10 biggest prizes this week when the jackpot grows to roughly $400 million.

Lottery officials say no one claimed Saturday's $334 million prize, although someone from Pennsylvania won $2 million and three players from California, Connecticut and South Carolina won $1 million in the game.

When the jackpot reaches $400 million, it might exceed the size of the sixth-largest prize in Powerball history.

That was a $399.4 million prize won in 2013 by someone from South Carolina.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

The next drawing will be held Wednesday.

During last Wednesday's drawing, someone bought a Powerball ticket worth $1.9 million in San Jose, Lottery officials said.

Lottery officials reported that the winner, who has not yet come forward, was able to match five of the six numbers in Wednesday's draw, winning $1,900,176.

The mystery winner purchased the ticket at The Wine Rack, a liquor store located at 5768 Santa Teresa Blvd. in San Jose.

The ticket matched the numbers 12, 61, 54, 38 and 36, missing only the Powerball number 22.

Winners have 180 days from the date of their winning drawing to claim their prize before the money will be redirected to help California public schools, according to lottery officials.

Lottery officials strongly urge winners to immediately sign the back of their winning ticket and store them in a safe place until they can redeem their prize.

Had the ticket matched all six numbers, it would have been worth $300 million.
