(NEW YORK) — California, Florida, and Tennessee are home to the three winning tickets in the world record-breaking Powerball lottery.
The Wednesday night drawing totaled a nearly $1.6 billion dollar jackpot.
The winning numbers are 8, 27, 34, 4, 19 and the Powerball of 10.
By early Wednesday evening, the jackpot was estimated to be $1.5 billion for an annuitized payout or $930 million for a single cash payout.
The jackpot has reached world-record levels after 20 drawings without a winner. It started at $40 million on Nov. 7, 2015.
