Powerball players have a 1-in-175 million chance of winning the fifth largest lottery jackpot in history - a whopping $400 million - in the drawing Wednesday night. Massive lottery jackpots have become more common in recent years, perhaps a result of players waiting to buy a ticket when the jackpot is smaller. So far this year, a New Jersey resident netted a $338 million Powerball jackpot in March, a Florida woman won a $590 million Powerball jackpot in May, and three people in Minnesota and New Jersey split a $448 million Powerball jackpot in August.

A lucky person holds the winning ticket for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing — the first jackpot winner sold in Maryland, according to state lottery officials. The ticket was sold at Wine World, in the 400 block of Constant Friendship Blvd. in Abingdon. That business will receive a $25,000 commission for selling the ticket, which had the numbers 3, 5, 18, 27, 54 and Power Ball 13. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize, which could be either the $108.8 million annuity — $1.2 million per year for 30 years, after taxes — or a $65 million cash option, which would result in a $43 million lump-sum payment,after taxes.
