With no wins on Saturday, the Powerball jackpot has risen to $670 million.
Due to the lack of a winning ticket in Saturday’s Powerball drawing, the jackpot has risen to at least $670 million, with a cash value of $474.8 million, according to lottery officials.
The numbers chosen on Saturday were 28-38-42-47-52, with the Powerball being 1 and a prize pool of $635 million. It was the game’s sixth-largest jackpot ever, and the tenth-largest in US lottery history.
The next drawing will take place at 10:59 p.m. on Monday.
According to a Powerball statement, the jackpot was last reached in a June drawing when a ticket for $285.6 million was sold in Florida. Since that drawing, there have been 49 consecutive drawings without a Grand Prize winner.
There were no tickets for the $1 million prize of the five white balls in Saturday’s drawing, but there were no red Powerball tickets. Six people won $50,000 after selecting four of the five numbers and the Powerball.
With a $2 ticket, the overall odds of winning a reward are 1 in 24.9. The jackpot has a 1 in 292.2 million chance of being won.
The drawing tickets are available in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands. More than half of the proceeds from each ticket sale stay in the state where it was purchased. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, the Powerball drawing is broadcast live on television.
The Monday drawing was added to the Wednesday and Saturday dates on Aug. 23.
A $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot ticket sold in South Carolina in 2018 was the greatest single lottery winner ever. Three winners had to divide the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot two years ago.
