Call the number to the gas station, and you get a busy signal. Most likely people calling to ask who the winner is. Or congratulating the owner on the cool $50,000 he’ll be pocketing for selling the ticket.

Wednesday’s haul was the fourth largest lottery price in U.S. history.

The biggest payload in American history was $665 million in the Mega Millions game in March 2012. The greatest Powerball jackpot was the $590.5 million won with a single ticket in Florida this past May.

But $400 million, with a cash value of $223 million, is still pretty sweet.

Someone’s calling in sick this morning. That, you can bet on.
