Powerball Jackpot Rises to $550,000,000

History of the lottery

No one won Saturday night's Powerball jackpot.

No tickets matched the six winning numbers drawn Saturday night, so the Powerball grand prize climbed to $550 million. Those tickets were sold in New Jersey, North Dakota and Pennsylvania.

While no one won Wednesday's drawing, two NY residents did claim $1 million each after they got the first five numbers correct, according to ABC News. Of course, on the off-chance you managed to select the winning number combination, you can decide between the 30-payment annuity option or the one-time payout of $300.2 million, before taxes, of course. There are smaller prizes for tickets with fewer of the winning numbers.

The Powerball has gone 21 consecutive drawings since December without a jackpot victor.

It is the eighth largest Powerball jackpot since the game began in 1992 and the largest jackpot since tickets in Iowa and NY split a $687.8 jackpot just before Halloween. The white balls are numbered 1 through 69 and the Powerball is numbered 1 through 26.

Van Dijk on a rare mistake, Fulham win and Reds' 'fantastic position'
But they almost suffered a very costly European hangover against a Fulham side still 13 points adrift of safety. It is hard to see them getting points from this game unless Liverpool get the basics wrong.

Prior to Johnson's jackpot win the day after Christmas, no one had hit the Powerball top prize since October 27. The total prize was the fourth largest jackpot in US lottery history. That was the largest prize won in the state.

It is the eighth largest jackpot in Powerball history.

Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The victor must match numbers on the five white balls and the red Powerball.
