The biggest ever Powerball payout was a $1.586 billion grand prize in 2016.

A Christmas miracle happened for a lucky new millionaire in Chesterfield.

The last Mega Millions jackpot victor came in October when a $1.5 billion-winning ticket was sold in SC.

"Each state uses its unclaimed lottery prizes for different purposes", the Mega Millions' website explains. But as of this week, no one has come forward. The cash option is $193.7 million.

The estimated jackpot ahead of the draw is $321 million.

The winning numbers are 5-28-62-65-70 and Mega ball 5.

For Wednesday night's Powerball drawing, the jackpot is an estimated $294 million with a cash option of $177.6 million. The numbers were announced on October 23 and as of last week, the victor has not come forward to claim their prize which has left lottery officials baffled, The State reported.

The victor has until April 21 to claim the prize - which amounts to almost $900 million with a lump-sum payout - and thanks to state laws, they are allowed to remain anonymous.
