DES MOINES, Iowa- By the time the winning numbers were drawn, the jackpot for the Powerball had grown to an estimated $448 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.

A recent game change increased the frequency of huge jackpots, and Wednesday's third largest-ever jackpot comes only months after the biggest Powerball jackpot in history - a $590 million pot won in Florida.

The allure of capturing such a rich jackpot has had players in a ticket-buying frenzy, further confirming Powerball players often don't get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks.
