The second largest Powerball jackpot in the game’s history is up for grabs in the next draw on Wednesday night.

The upcoming jackpot is worth an estimated $1.73 billion for the annuity option or $756.6 million in cash.

The jackpot was previously won on July 19. Since then, it has restarted and grown over 35 draws. In Monday’s draw, no ticket matched all six winning numbers. Still, one ticket —purchased in Florida— won $2 million in prizes after matching all five white balls while using Power Play. Four more winners —one in California, one in Indiana, one in Oregon, and one in Virginia— won $1 million for matching the same number of balls without Power Play.

Powerball tickets cost $2 and are sold in 45 U.S. states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. 

Jackpot winners can claim the money as an immediate cash lump sum or in 30 annual payments over 29 years. Both advertised prize options do not include federal and jurisdictional taxes.

Powerball drawings are broadcast live every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee and posted on Lottery USA immediately after.
