Wednesday night's winning Powerball ticket is worth $222 million. It's the biggest jackpot since the lottery started offering Powerball in California last month.

The giant prize has been ballooning since March 30, when an Illinois player won $50 million.

If one person wins the $222 million jackpot and chooses the cash option he or she would walk away with $144 million.
