Lotto Estimates $1.3 BILLION Jackpot After No Powerball Winner Saturday
No ticket matched all six Powerball numbers following Saturday night's drawing for a record jackpot of nearly $950 million, lottery officials said, boosting the expected payout for the next drawing to a whopping $1.3 billion.
The winning numbers — disclosed live on television and online — were 16-19-32-34-57 and the Powerball number 13. All six numbers must be correct to win, although the first five can be in any order. The odds to win the largest lottery prize in U.S. history were one in 292.2 million.
Officials with the Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the Powerball game, said they expected about 75 percent of the possible number combinations would have been bought for Saturday night's drawing.
The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday.
