$448 million up for grabs in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing

  • The Powerball lottery jackpot is growing to an estimated $495 million for Saturday's drawing

There have been 22 consecutive drawings without a victor since a ticket sold in NY matched all six numbers in the $294 million Powerball jackpot drawing on December 26.

One player did manage to pick the 5 white balls but not the PowerBall, earning them $2 million.

The Powerball lottery jackpot for Saturday's drawing has jumped to almost a half-billion dollars after no tickets matched all of the numbers in Wednesday night's drawing. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $300.2 million.

Wednesday's winning numbers are 18, 36, 45, 47, 69 with 14 as the Powerball. The white balls will be numbered one through 69 and the Powerball will be one through 26. Two of those tickets were sold in NY and are worth $1 million each. Now, he's going to chill out.

Statistically, there's a one in 292 million chance of matching all six numbers. But if you were to beat the long odds and hit the jackpot, you'd have an important decision to make: cash or annuity.


Mike Weirsky, who won $273 million in a drawing last week, initially forgot the jackpot ticket at the QuickChek.

Drawings will be held every Wednesday and Saturday night at 11 ET until someone wins the jackpot.

Of course, federal and jurisdictional taxes apply to both options.

Powerball is offered in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
