The jackpot for the next drawing is now estimated at $400 million, according to Powerball officials. That would be worth more than $230 million before taxes if taken as a lump sum, according to NBC News.

The next drawing is scheduled for Wednesday night.

Lotto officials say the largest Lottery jackpot ever won was the $656 million Mega Millions prize won on March, 30, 2012. The cash option on that jackpot was $474 million.

In terms of the Powerball jackpot, a ticket worth $590.5 million was recently sold in Florida, the state with the most Powerball winners to date. Powerball is played in 43 states – including California – plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The first Powerball drawing in California was April 10. Californians bought a record number of tickets on the first day of sales in April, purchasing more than $3.1 million worth of tickets.

Each Powerball ticket costs $2. Powerball drawings are scheduled for every Wednesday and Saturday at 7:59 p.m. PT.
