NEW YORK (WABC) -- The winning numbers were drawn for Wednesday night's 715,100,000 Powerball jackpot after no one matched all six numbers on Monday.

Here were Wednesday's winning numbers: 46, 37, 19, 56, 36 Powerball: 24

No one has won Powerball's top prize since Aug. 3, allowing tonight's jackpot to slowly grow for nearly three months.

The game's seventh largest prize ever is now up for grabs.

You can watch the Powerball drawing at 11 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, at abc7ny.com/lottery, and on our 24/7 streaming channel.

Of course, the reason no one has won the giant prize since August is because the odds of hitting all the numbers are so miserable, at one in 292.2 million.

But even if your ticket doesn't match all six jackpot-winning numbers, it could still win something.

One lucky player in New York won $1 million in Saturday's drawing.

That ticket was purchased on Long Island in Albertson at 848 Willis Avenue Services Inc.

Wednesday's $715,100,000 million jackpot is for those who take an annuity option, paid out annually over 29 years.

Winners nearly always opt for cash.

The biggest lottery jackpot was a $1.586 billion Powerball prize that three ticket holders won in 2016.

Powerball is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Mega Millions is also streamed at abc7ny.com/lottery on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 p.m.
