Wednesday night’s drawing will be the 18th drawing since the most recent Powerball grand prize winner on November 4, 2015.
Plays cost $2 each and the Powerplay (which can increase non-jackpot prizes) is available for an additional $1. Tickets can be purchased at West Virginia Lottery retailers across the State up until 9:59 p.m. on draw days.
The game’s drawings are at 10:59 p.m. ET on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and are broadcast live from Tallahassee, Fla.
