Cheering fans in front of a wall of entertainment images.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Powerball jackpot has increased to an estimated $1.23 billion after another drawing without a big winner. The numbers selected Wednesday night were: 11, 38, 41, 62, 65 and the Powerball 15. The jackpot now ranks as the eighth-largest in U.S. lottery history. It has been growing for more than three months. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 292.2 million. The $1.23 billion prize is for a sole winner who chooses to be paid through an annuity with 30 annual payments. Winners almost always prefer the cash option. That option for the next drawing Saturday night would be an estimated $595.1 million.
