Powerball Grows To Over $340 Million After No Winner Saturday
We all bought in at work... and matched the Powerball for a cool $4. We won't blow it all in one vending machine. But we were not alone in not winning millions. No one matched all six numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing, increasing the jackpot to $343 million for Wednesday night's drawing.
The winning numbers drawn Saturday were: 20-24-38-56-68, Powerball: 18.
A basic Powerball ticket costs $2, and to claim the big prize you'll need to match five numbers (1-69), plus the Mega Ball (1-26). The odds? 1 in 292,301,388. Assuming you win the Powerball jackpot Wednesday, you can take the lump-sum cash option and take home over a quarter of a billion dollars. That just sounds surreal...
