The numbers revealed just after 11 pm were 32, 26, 20, 38 and 58, with a Powerball 3.

The Associated Press said the jackpot was the 10th largest lottery prize in USA history, but that no one had yet to come forward to claim the prize. The one victor defied the slim odds: one in 292.2 million.

While that person has stepped forward, whoever won a $156.2 Powerball prize in Wisconsin on March 22 has yet to claim his or her prize.

This is the 19th straight drawing without a jackpot victor.

The numbers have been drawn for the 10th largest lottery prize in US history.

The lump sum payout for the winning ticket would be $279.1 million.

About four months later, a Trenton woman and her seven adult children shared a $429.6 million Powerball prize.

The ticket was sold at a liquor store in Pawtucket.

The extra dollar also automatically boosts the second prize of matching all five numbers from $1 million to $2 million. The lucky victor made the purchase at a gas station on Route 46 in Dover.

The odds of winning the powerball grand prize tonight though are slim being 1 in a 292 million chance. The reason the jackpot has grown so large is that no one has matched all the numbers since April 1.
