Winning $422 million Powerball numbers drawn

The winning numbers for the $422 million Powerball jackpot have been drawn.



The numbers are: 10 47 68 65 50 Powerball 24.



If anyone matches the winning numbers, they will be the game's first jackpot winner since May 7.



A jackpot winner could opt for a $422 million annuity paid out over 29 years or a $291 million lump sum. The prize would rank as the nation's 11th largest.



The chance of winning Powerball is incredibly small, at 292.2 million-to-1. But players have much better odds, of about 1 in 25, of winning smaller prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million.



The big Powerball prize comes less than three weeks after a player in Indiana won a $536 million Mega Millions jackpot.
