Well, did you win the $700 million Powerball jackpot?

It's time to decide if you're going to show up for work tomorrow.

Here are the winning numbers for Wednesday's Powerball drawing: 6-7-16-23 and 26 with the Powerball of 4. The Power Play was 4.

According to the official Powerball website, the results were pending as of 11:30 p.m. ET. So we'll have to wait to see if there's one winner or several or whether lottery fever heats up as we look forward to an even larger jackpot for Saturday night.

The one-time cash option for Wednesday's jackpot was set earlier in the day at roughly $443 million by the multi-state lottery game that is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rica and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The final jackpot and cash option was set just before the late Wednesday evening drawing and was based on ticket sales. That amount was pending at 11:30.

The Powerball jackpot has not been hit since early June. A $700 million jackpot would make it the second-largest lottery prize ever handed out in America, topped only by a $1.6 billion Powerball prize shared by three ticket holders in January 2016.

A Mega Millions jackpot was hit in Illinois earlier this month at $393 million.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play, with drawings on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
