The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s drawing has jumped to $600 million, according to the multi-state lottery’s website, a new record for the Powerball franchise. The top prize now has an estimated cash value of $376 million.
So what would you do with $475 million? It seems like more money than anyone could spend, but that large sum of money could become a reality for somebody by late Saturday night. There were no winning tickets sold in Wednesday night’s drawing for the Powerball jackpot, which at the time was for about $360 million.
There were no big winners in the Powerball jackpot over the weekend, and the prize for Wednesday’s drawing just keeps growing. Officials said the jackpot has grown to about $360 million, which is the third-highest in the history of the game.
A single ticket sold in New Jersey matched all six numbers in Saturday night’s drawing for the $338.3 million Powerball jackpot, lottery officials said. It was the 13th drawing held in the days since a Virginia man won a $217 million jackpot Feb. 6.
March Madness basketball brackets aren’t the only office pools underway this Thursday. Powerball players also are pooling their money to buy blocks of tickets for a $320 million jackpot.
The two grand-prize-winning Powerball tickets were sold in Arizona and Missouri, but seven tickets sold in Minnesota qualified as nice consolation prizes.
There were no jackpot winners in Saturday night’s Powerball lottery drawing, meaning the jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will go up to $425 million.
What would you do with $320 million? Your dream home becomes a reality, you can buy that lavish car you’ve always wanted and now you can have that lakefront property and boat.
Everybody knows it’s the longest of long shots, but that doesn’t stop lottery ticket holders from dreaming of what they would do with a $640 million jackpot. Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing is the richest jackpot in world history.
Like a snowball barreling downhill, the Mega Millions Lottery continues to grow. By Wednesday afternoon, it had surpassing the $500 million mark.
None of the tickets sold for the Powerball game Wednesday evening matched all six numbers drawn, which were: 17-28-38-39-51 and Powerball 33.
Attention lottery players: Powerball tickets will be doubling in price, but that means bigger jackpots, too.
The odds of winning tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot are one in 176 million.
