The Powerball Jackpot rises to $ 620 million, the third largest in the game's history



The day after no-one won a $ 1 billion Mega Million jackpot, the numbers were drawn for a relatively poor Powerball premium of $ 470 million. But, like Mega Millions, no home took powerball and the pot continued to rise.

The winners for Saturday's drawing were 16, 54, 57, 62, 69 with a Powerball of 23.

Nobody claimed that big prize, the Powerball drawing on Wednesday – one day after a $ 1.6 billion Mega Million drawing – will be $ 620 million. Cash payment is approximately $ 354.3 million. Powerball is the third largest in game history and sixth largest in US lotto history.

There were a number of running prizes. There were $ 2 million winners in Florida and Tennessee, and $ 1

million winners in Arizona, Connecticut, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey and Washington.

The first five balls were taken from a pool of 69 and Powerball from a pool of 26, making the odds of getting all six numbers right 292,201,338 to 1, according to the Powerball website.

A single winning ticket Saturday would have been eligible for a cash payment of 268.6 million dollars.

Combined with a new Mega Millions jackpot of $ 1.6 billion, it's more than $ 2 billion in the top prize between the two lottery games – and millions more available for subordinated prizes.

Mega Million's $ 1.6 billion top prize has a cash payment option of $ 904 million, but both can grow depending on the volume of ticket sales.
