MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Somebody could be going to bed a whole lot richer Wednesday night.

Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing is worth an estimated $425 million. It’s the third-highest Powerball jackpot ever and the fourth largest lottery prize on record. A Florida woman won the biggest Powerball jackpot of about $590 million back in May.

The biggest lottery jackpot in history came in March of 2012, when the Mega Millions game got up to $656 million. Lottery officials said if nobody wins Wednesday night’s Powerball, we could approach record territory.

The lump sum cash option for Wednesday night’s drawing is about $240 million after taxes.
