Adrian Tongson of Racine, Wis., was the last Mega Millions jackpot winner, taking home a $120 million prize on Sept. 15 last year.

“Regardless of how much you spend, it only takes one ticket to win. That’s what won it for me,” he said, according to organizers of the lottery game.

The Powerball jackpot prize is currently sitting at $410 million, with a lump-sum payment option of $316.4 million.

That drawing will be held Wednesday at 10:59 p.m. EST.
