Winning numbers for the $625 million Powerball jackpot

Winning numbers for the $625 million Powerball jackpot

With no victor for Saturday's Powerball drawing, the prize is getting even bigger. He hit the $298.3 million jackpot on December 26.

The numbers drawn are: 24, 25, 52, 60, and 66 and the Powerball is 5. The chances of getting all five number and the Powerball number correct are just over 292 million-to-one.

Now, it will continue to grow.

You have until 10 p.m. Saturday to purchase a Powerball ticket for $2 and possibly win the jackpot. The $1 million-winning tickets were sold in Florida, Illinois, North Carolina, North Dakota, New Hampshire, New York (2) and SC. It was the seventh-largest jackpot in US lottery history.

The estimated lump sum payout would be $380.6 million before taxes. Not a lot, but enough to buy yourself a couple more tickets. The white balls are numbered 1 through 69 and the Powerball is numbered 1 through 26.

"It only takes one ticket to win".

According to the game's official website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350. Next is your shot at $7. You can get a hundred bucks by matching either four white balls or three white balls and the Powerball, and if you match four white balls plus the Powerball you'd get $50,000.

Powerball is played in 44 states in the U.S., plus D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
