A Powerball winner in Wisconsin claimed $768.8 million jackpot late Wednesday. The winning numbers for the fourth-largest lottery jackpot in the U.S. history were 16-20-37-44-62 and a Powerball of 12.

If the winner claims the prize in lump sum instead of spreading out over 29 years, then the amount paid will be $465.5 million.

For three months there had been no winner for the Powerball. The odds of winning this Powerball jackpot were one in 292.2 million. About one in every 24.87 Powerball tickets sold wins a prize, starting at $4. The largest lottery prize of all time was a $1.5 billion Powerball split among winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016. The last big win was back on Dec. 26, 2018, when a truck driver from Brooklyn took home the $298.3 million prize.

Powerball is played in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The average American spends about $223 per year on lottery tickets, according to a survey from LENDedu.

How to play and check Powerball:

Players need to pick five lucky numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26 on a Powerball play slip. Winners typically have 90 days to one year to claim their prize, depending on the selling jurisdiction. Expiration dates are printed on the back of tickets.

The sale of tickets ends at least an hour before the official draw which takes place Wednesday and Saturday nights.
