Powerball jackpot inches closer to half a billion without winning in the $ 414 million drawing



The Powerball jackpot will empty almost half a billion dollars after no one won the $ 414 million drawing on Saturday.

The drawing on Wednesday will be worth $ 448 million.

The figures for Saturday's drawing were 5-6-45-55-59 with a Powerball of 14.

Although there were no first-place winners, some in Puerto Rico took home a $ 2 million prize, and winners in Nebraska and Texas won $ 1 million.

The $ 448 million drawing is the biggest Powerball jackpot in 2019 so far, and the 11th largest Powerball jackpot on record.

The odds of winning? One in 292.2 million.

The winner is the lucky ticket holder to have 180 days to claim the jackpot.

But sometimes it takes a few months for someone to arrive and claim the price. That's what happened earlier this week when the only winner of the $ 1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot from October 2018 claimed the price.

The person, from South Carolina, chose to remain anonymous and took the cash alternative for a one-time payment of $ 877,784,124. The winner took so long to arrive, the inhabitants of the industrial city where the ticket was sold assumed that he or she was dead.

The payoff was the biggest to a single winner in US history, officials said.
