Powerball Jackpot Up To $70 Million
The Powerball jackpot is currently at $70 million, as nobody won the jackpot prize on Saturday. The last jackpot winner came from Virginia earlier this month, when the jackpot was up to $217 million. 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 in this past Saturday’s drawing were: 15, 16, 46, 50, 58, Powerball: 29.
There was a winner in Louisiana for the $2 million Match 5 Power Play prize, and winners in Missouri and New York for the $1 million Match 5 prize.
For Saturday’s drawing, there were a total of 467,639 winners, winning non-jackpot prizes totaling $7,039,727.
Odds of winning the jackpot, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, are 1 in 175,223,510.
The next drawing is Wednesday night.
