The multi-state Powerball jackpot prize keeps climbing, with Saturday’s drawing standing at $320 million.
The cash payout would be $202 million. Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time.
A $246 million Powerball prize was won Sept. 17 by someone who purchased a ticket at a Publix store in Brookhaven, Georgia.
The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, Nov. 19, are: 16, 24, 28, 43, 61 and a Powerball of 21.
Each ticket costs $2. Find out where you can buy your Powerball tickets here.
The Powerball game is played by matching all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338.
Tonight’s jackpot is tiny when compared with January’s record Powerball jackpot, which was worth nearly $1.6 billion. But it’s enough to make Americans drop by the nearest convenience store with dreams of cash.
The billion-dollar-plus prize won in the Jan. 13 drawing was the largest lotto jackpot awarded in U.S. history and was split by three winners. And earlier this summer, a New Hampshire player won a $478 million prize.
If you still want to take a chance — someone has to win, right? — you have a better chance of hitting the jackpot if you let the computer pick your numbers. The Multi-State Lottery Association, which operates the Powerball game, says about 75 percent of winning tickets are selected when the numbers are chosen by a computer.
