Third-largest Powerball jackpot up for grabs Wednesday

The New Hampshire Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing is expected to reach $400 million, with an estimated one-time cash payout option of $230.3 million. (Estimated jackpot amounts are before taxes.) This is the third largest jackpot in Powerball history.

One $10,000 winning Powerball ticket was sold in New Hampshire for Saturday night's draw. That winning ticket was sold at the Hannaford's in Rochester. The winning numbers were 21-24-36-42-45 PB-15. Nearly 14,000 New Hampshire Powerball players won a total of $84,800 in lower-tier prizes in Saturday's drawing.

Charlie McIntyre, executive director of the New Hampshire Lottery, said, "Our lottery retailers around the state are reporting an uptick in ticket sales, and we expect sales for this week to be very strong."

The largest Powerball jackpot ever was $590.5 million won on May 18, 2013, in Florida.

Powerball tickets are on sale at over 1,250 retailers in New Hampshire until 9:50 p.m. Wednesday night.
