Wednesday's Powerball drawing is right around the corner, but two Arizona lottery players may want to cash out now.

Officials with the Arizona Lottery announced Tuesday morning that a pair of winning Powerball tickets were sold in Arizona ahead of last night's drawing, each amounting to $100,000 after both tickets opted for the Powerplay.

The tickets were purchased at different locations, one at a Safeway in Cave Creek and the other at a Circle K in Phoenix. Had the players not chosen to Powerplay, their winnings would've amounted to $50,000.

The Powerball jackpot still remains up for grabs, however, climbing to its eighth-largest value in the history of the game at $653 million (with a $350.5 million cash option).

The next drawing will be held Wednesday night.
