Numbers drawn for $524M Powerball jackpot

The winning numbers for Wednesday night's $524 million Powerball jackpot are 47, 2, 63, 62, 11 and Powerball 17. The Power Play is 3.



Multi-State Lottery Association officials on Tuesday increased the expected prize from $400 million because of fast sales for the largest lottery jackpot in nearly a year.



The biggest jackpot was a $656 million Mega Millions prize won in 2012. The last time Powerball had grown this large was in February 2015, when three winners split a $564.1 million prize.



Powerball is played in 44 states as well as the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
