DES MOINES, Iowa – Lottery officials say the Powerball jackpot has balloon to $ 750 million after no ticket matched all six numbers in the last drawing.
The numbers that were drawn on Saturday night are 24, 25, 52, 60 and 66, with a Powerball on 5.
Next drawing for what would be the fourth largest jackpot in American history is Wednesday. The odds of winning are about 1 in 292.2 million.
No one has won the Powerball jackpot since the day after Christmas. Twenty-four drawings since then have failed to produce a winner.
The buyers of three tickets shared the country's largest jackpot. There was an almost $ 1.59 billion Powerball prize drawn on January 13, 2016. A South Carolina buyer won a $ 1.54 billion Mega Millions jackpot. It was the nation's second largest lottery prize ever.
