Powerball's biggest jackpot in 18 months - $254.2 million - was up for grabs Wednesday night.
It was won by a single ticket sold in Connecticut that matched all the numbers drawn: 12, 14, 34, 39 and 46, with a Powerball of 36.
The cash prize, about $150 million, was the biggest in five years.
Just missing, by failing to match only the Powerball, were tickets in a dozen states. One in Arizona is worth $1 million for matching five numbers while having the Power Play multiplier option. Winning $200,000 were four Florida tickets, three each in New York and Illinois, two in Ohio, and one each in Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, and Wisconsin.
