No winner drawn in Powerball; jackpot surpasses $1 billion
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — If a potential jackpot of nearly $950 million wasn’t enough reason to buy a Powerball lottery ticket, then how about $1.3 billion?
No jackpot-winning numbers were drawn Saturday for what’s already the biggest price in U.S. lottery history so $1.3 billion or more will be the top prize Wednesday. Saturday’s winning numbers were: 16-19-32-34-57 and the Powerball number 13.
The Multi-State Lottery Association announced the numbers live on television and on its website.
To win the jackpot, a ticket must have all six numbers correct. The first five can be in any order but the sixth must be the Powerball number.
The odds to win are one in 292.2 million.
Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
