Powerball jackpot climbs to $478 million for Saturday’s drawing
With no jackpot winners in the last drawing, tonight's Powerball jackpot is up to $478 million.
The Powerball game jackpot grew to an annuity value of $478 million with a cash value of $330.6 million for the next drawing, which takes place on Saturday night. No one matched all five numbers and the Powerball in Wednesday's drawing.
The winning numbers drawn Wednesday were 10, 47, 50, 65 and 68 with a Powerball of 24. Three winning tickets matching the five numbers worth $ 1 million were won in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virgina, and there were just over 1.9 million winners of smaller prizes following the drawing.
In May, a winning Powerball ticket worth $429.6 million annuity was sold at the 7-Eleven at 750 Chambers St. in Trenton, according to officials from the NJ Lottery. The ticket was purchased as a cash ticket and is valued at $284 million. It matched the five white balls and the Powerball.
Saturday's drawing takes place at 10:59 p.m.
