Powerball Expected To Be $400 Million – No Big Winner Saturday
If you purchased a Powerball lottery ticket for Saturday night's drawing then chances are you were a bit disappointed in the way the ping pong balls bounced. The winning numbers in Saturday's drawing were 5-6-15-29-42, with a Powerball number of 10 and Power Play 2. Lottery officials announced there were no tickets that matched all of those numbers.
That means that Wednesday night's drawing will feature an estimated jackpot of $400 million. If you're the kind that would rather have a lump sum payment you can expect a check for approximately $244.8 million.
The $400 million jackpot would still be significantly less than the February of 2015 jackpot of $564 million. The largest Powerball jackpot was $593 million. That jackpot was won in May of 2013.
Powerball is played in 43 states including Louisiana and the District of Columbia. The next drawing for the Powerball jackpot will be on Wednesday evening just before 10 PM.
