Powerball ticket sold in Indiana hits $435M jackpot

A single Powerball ticket sold in Indiana has won Wednesday night’s massive $435 million jackpot.

The numbers pulled were 10, 13, 28, 52, 61 and the Powerball was 2. The identity of the winning ticket holder wasn’t immediately available.
If it seems like massive Powerball jackpots have become relatively common, that’s because they have.
Five of the ten largest Powerball jackpots have come since the start of last year. The reason: Powerball changed up its formula in October 2015 so that players have more numbers to choose from.
More numbers mean longer odds of a winner — the odds of winning Powerball are now 1 in 292 million. Before the switch, the Powerball odds were 1 in 175 million.
