Winning Powerball numbers for $524 million pot

(ABCNEWS.GO) — The winning numbers for the estimated $524 million Powerball jackpot have been chosen — 47, 2, 63, 62, 11 and the Powerball of 17.

The prize surged from $450 million to $524 million Wednesday night, making it the fourth largest Powerball jackpot of all time.

The payout has an estimated cash value of more than $300 million, before taxes, according to the Powerball website. The final take-home amount depends on an individual’s tax rate and the state and local taxes in their state of residence, Tracey Cohen, the interim executive director of the D.C. Lottery, told ABC News.
