The Powerball jackpot was an estimated $262 million. Were you Wednesday night’s big winner?

Here are the numbers for Wednesday, Dec. 19:

15 – 29 – 31 – 37 – 43 and Powerball: 16

The Megaplier was 2x.

The cash option for Wednesday’s drawing was $155.5 million, according to the Powerball website.

If you win the jackpot, get ready to do a few things. Call a lawyer to have them help them work out your finances and prepare yourself to tell a lot of people no. And unfortunately for anyone hoping to stay under the radar with their winnings is out of luck. In New Jersey, winners are required to be identified.

The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots have been rising steadily since lottery fever gripped the nation earlier this fall.

No one won the Mega Millions jackpot Tuesday night and it has risen to $305 million for Friday night’s drawing. The cash option is $181.4 million, according to the Mega Millions website.

It’s a still a far cry from the near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot that someone in South Carolina won in October.

The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing was $262 million.
