Is There a Winner Yet: Powerball Jackpot Keeps Climbing

William Thomas Cain

The Powerball jackpot is up to $435 million for Saturday after Wednesday night's drawing failed to produce a victor.

Lottery officials expect to sell about $3 million worth of Powerball tickets ahead of the next drawing on Saturday, with peak sales expected to hit 1,800 tickets sold per minute.

The drawing takes place tonight at 10:59 P.M. and tickets can be bought up until 9:45 P.M. Had the numbers matched, the victor would have won an estimated $375 million. Players select five white numbers from (1 to 69) and one red ball (1 to 26) Tickets cost $2 each.

If you should win tonight the cash option for the jackpot is $235 million.




Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

All eyes are on the USA this Saturday after Powerball rolled over to US$475 million.** Many tens of thousands of Jamaicans are going online to play Powerball online through theLotter, so the chance that a Jamaican will win the huge prize is increasing daily.

In New Jersey, two tickets matched four numbers plus the Powerball.

Most people who buy tickets let the machines pick the numbers at random for them. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win at least $1 million. Match five prizes are paid out in lump sums and do not have an option for installments like the grand prize. There were no grand prize winners but one lucky North Carolina victor used the Power Play and won $2 million. It is $1 million without Power Play. National POWERBALL drawings are broadcast live, in high-definition, from the Florida Lottery's state of the art draw studio in Tallahassee.
