The jackpot was advertised at an estimated $394 million but high ticket sales boosted the amount before the drawing. The winner will be able to choose between having the full $396.9 million paid as an annual annuity over 30 years, or claim a one-time lump sum payout of $274.6 million. Federal taxes are due on either option, but Florida doesn't impose state taxes on lottery winnings.

Under Florida law, the winner has six months from the draw date to claim their prize - and to prepare for their overnight wealth, they should make sure to do these 10 things before they claim.

A ticket worth $1 million was also sold in Florida for Wednesday's draw - the ticket matched all five white numbers to win Powerball's Match 5 second prize. Players in Ohio and Virginia also won $1 million each, while 32 players won $50,000 for matching four white numbers plus the Powerball.

There were 1,380,512 total winners in Wednesday's draw, and 108,156 of those were in Florida - so be sure to check your tickets and see if you've won a prize.

The last Powerball jackpot winner in Florida was James Stocklas, a judge from Pennsylvania who was vacationing in the Florida Keys. He won $291 million on March 2, 2016.

The jackpot has been rolling over since it was last won at $150 million by a single ticket in California on November 2, 2019. That jackpot remains unclaimed. Wednesday's draw was the 25th since that big win.
