A ticket sold in Lexington for Wednesday night's Powerball drawing matched the five white ball winning numbers but not the Powerball, winning the game's second prize of $1 million.

The next Powerball drawing takes place 11 p.m. EDT Saturday.

One player in Florida won the $2 million prize for the Power Play Match 5, according to the Powerball.

Add that to the Mega Millions jackpot to be drawn Friday, which has swollen to $900 million, and there are combined jackpots well past $1.3 billion at stake.

This is the third time in ten days someone in Kentucky has won $1 million by playing the lottery, according to the Kentucky Lottery.

"The lottery officials who run Mega Millions tweaked the rules and odds of the game in October a year ago to make jackpots pay out less frequently, spurring their monster growth", Ascienzo, who has studied lottery ticket purchase data from 2012 to 2018, tells FOX Business.

One ticket with the Powerplay option is worth $150,000.
