If a potential jackpot of nearly $950 million wasn’t enough reason to buy a Powerball lottery ticket, then how about $1.3 billion?
No jackpot-winning numbers were drawn Saturday for what’s already the biggest price in U.S. lottery history so $1.3 billion or more will be the top prize Wednesday.
lThe odds to win were one in 292.2 million, and the numbers drawn were 32-16-19-57-34 and Powerball number 13.
Officials with the Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the Powerball game, said they expected about 75 percent of the possible number combinations would have been bought for Saturday night’s drawing.
Since Nov. 4, the Powerball jackpot has grown from its $40 million starting point as no one has won the jackpot.
Powerball is played in 44 states as well as the District of Columbia, U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
