This Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot has grown to $422 million, after nearly three months without a winner.

Anyone who wins this week’s jackpot will be able to opt for a $291 million lump sum or a $422 million annuity paid over 29 years, the Associated Press reports.

While the 292.2 million to 1 chance of winning a Powerball might be daunting, the odds are better for the range of smaller prizes (from $1 to $4 million).

New Jersey matriarch Pearlie Mae Smith and her seven children won the last jackpot of $429.6 million on May 7.
