Powerball Jackpot up to Record $1.9 Billion After No Winner

A record-breaking Powerball jackpot grew to a whopping $1.9 billion after no one won the Saturday night drawing.

The winning numbers were: 28, 45, 53, 56, 69, and 20 for the red Powerball.

Monday evening will be the next opportunity for someone to be fortunate.

Due to the impossibility of anyone beating the odds of 1 in 292,2 million and winning the windfall, the Powerball prize continues to grow. To win the jackpot, players must match all five white Powerball orbs and one red Powerball.

The new $1.9 billion jackpot will be paid out as an annuity over 29 years to the recipient. Typically, lottery jackpot winners favor a lump sum of cash, which would be $929,1 million for Monday's drawing.

Since the prize was won on August 3, there have been forty drawings without a victor. According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, based in Clive, Iowa, this is the same number of drawings without a victor as in the previous year.

Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
