Americans went on a lotto-buying binge in the days leading up to the drawing, pushing the total prize to $587 million by Tuesday evening.

More than 560 million tickets were sold. It's unclear if the winner of either ticket is an individual or group. More information about the winning tickets will be released Wednesday.

The odds of winning the jackpot was 1 in 175 million. Powerball's jackpot resets to $40 million for its Saturday drawing. MegaMillions, the other multi-state big game, has a $12 million jackpot, which will be drawn Thursday.
