MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WPVI) --The Powerball jackpot has reached an estimated $1.5 billion, as sales push the total higher and higher ahead of Wednesday night's drawing.
The winning ticket of the January 13th drawing will take home a world record $1.5 billion annuity value or a $930 million cash prize.
Watch Wednesday night's drawing on 6abc and 6abc.com during Action News at 11.
Before rolling to a $1.3 billion jackpot on Saturday night, Powerball produced hundreds of thousands of winners across Pennsylvania - including a $1 million winner in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania lottery officials said.
The $1 million winning ticket sold in Philadelphia matched the five white balls drawn, 16-19-32-34-57, but not the red Powerball 13, to win a prize of $1 million, less 25 percent federal withholding.
The retailer, Wilson's Check Cashing, 1201 E. Susquehanna Ave., Philadelphia, earns a selling bonus of $5,000.
If Wednesday's jackpot is won by a Pennsylvania player, it would become the state's 20th multi-state jackpot win. The Pennsylvania Lottery has sold 17 jackpot-winning Powerball tickets and two jackpot-winning Mega Millions tickets.
Powerball is played in 44 states as well as the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
