The ticket was bought in Lutz, Florida, which is just north of Tampa.
Powerball is a lottery game where a player chooses five numbers from a set of 69 white balls and one number from 26 red Powerballs. For an additional cost, players can add Power Play to their ticket, which can multiply non-jackpot prizes.
Winners can also choose whether they’d like to collect their prize as an annuity or a lump-sum payment.
The record for largest jackpot in US history was just above $1.5 billion. In January 2016, this Powerball prize of $1.586 billion was split between three winners. Second to that, a South Carolinian anonymously claimed their $1.537 billion prize in October 2018, making them the largest single-winner in the US.
The next drawing is March 31, 2021, with an estimated jackpot of $20 million and a cash value of $13.6 million.
