The Powerball jackpot has reached $454 million for the April 27 draw after nobody claimed a winning ticket on April 25.

According to the Powerball website, the $454 million jackpot has a cash value of $271.9 million.

The winning numbers in the April 25 drawing were white balls 12, 18, 20, 39, and 61. The Powerball number was 10.

While no ticket matched all six numbers drawn on April 25 to take home the winning jackpot prize, two tickets won million dollar prizes: a ticket sold in Texas matched all five white balls to win $1 million and a ticket sold in North Carolina matched all five white balls and the Powerplay to win $2 million.

The last time someone hit the jackpot was on Feb. 14 when a single ticket sold at the One-Stop Convenience Store in Cheshire, Connecticut, won $185.3 million.

That was the second Powerball jackpot win of 2022 after a winning draw on Jan. 5 shared by two tickets in California and Wisconsin. The winners split the $632.6 million jackpot, the seventh largest in Powerball history.

Powerball is played in 45 states plus Washington, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.
