Powerball jackpot winning numbers announced
NEW YORK — Powerball has set another record for the biggest jackpot ever, reaching a staggering $900 million on Saturday.
The winning numbers, drawn at 11 pm ET on Saturday, were 32, 16, 19, 57, 34, and the Powerball was 13. It was not immediately clear if anyone had won the jackpot.
The biggest winning jackpot was in 2012 with a MegaMillions game that was worth $656 million.
The current Powerball jackpot hit $700 million on Thursday after nobody won on Wednesday night — the 18th drawing without a winner.
The next drawing is Saturday night. Those planning to get in on the action should know the odds of winning are 1 in 292 million.
The buying frenzy continued all day Saturday. A few hours before the drawing, the Texas Lottery reported that $5,838,152 in Powerball tickets were sold in a one-hour period
The current jackpot has been growing since November 7. It first broke into the top 10 largest jackpots ranking last weekend, when it hit $400 million. Since then ticket sales have only taken off.
Powerball is sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
