ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The fourth-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history is up for grabs in Wednesday's drawing.

The $750 million jackpot would also be the third-largest prize in Powerball history. The prize carries an estimated cash option around $465 million.

Illinois Lottery says two players from Illinois have won a Powerball jackpot since 2010. One was a Freeport man with a $50 million prize in 2013, while a trust also split a $37.5 million jackpot in 2010.

The last Powerball winner received a prize from a drawing in late December.
