The winning numbers for Powerball's big $1.5 billion drawing are in!

The one Powerball number that really matters

The moment has arrived! The winning numbers have been selected in Wednesday's massive Powerball jackpot.

The numbers drawn were 08, 27, 34, 04 and 19, and the Powerball was 10.

There were at least three winners for the record-shattering $1.5 billion jackpot. Winning Powerball tickets were sold in Florida, Tennessee and the Californian town of Chino Hills, according to the California Lottery Association.

The previous drawing, on January 9, was the 19th in a row without a grand prize winner.

The winners won't take home the full $1.5 billion, though. First, there will be an expensive tax bill, and the prize money will be split evenly among them.

But a winning ticket will still be a staggering payday.

Tickets cost $2, or $3 for a Power Play ticket, which boosts the value of non-jackpot prizes.

Powerball players have spent an estimated $2.6 billion on tickets since the last jackpot was claimed in November.

To win the grand prize, the ticket must match all five numbers (in any order) and the red Powerball number.

Anyone with just a matching Powerball number gets four bucks.

Tickets with more matching numbers are eligible for a prize of $7, $100, $50,000 or $1 million. You can see all the ways to win here.
