Powerball Jackpot Up To $50 MillionBy: Chris Crum - February 13, 2013
The Powerball jackpot is currently at $50 million, as nobody won the $40 million jackpot on Saturday. Prior to that, a ticket in Virginia won the $217 prize a week ago. That ticket was sold in Richmond, and represented the biggest single prize won since the record $588 million prize in Novmeber, which was split between two tickets.
The winning numbers for Saturday’s drawing were: 5, 6, 16, 36, 58, Powerball: 3.
There were no winners of the Match 5 Power Play $2 million prize, but there were winners in Florida, Maryland and New York for the $1 million Match 5 prize.
On Saturday, there were 448,280 winners winning non-jackpot prizes totaling $6,252,616.
Odds of winning the jackpot, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, are 1 in 175,223,510.
The next drawing is Wednesday night.
