Powerball grand prize climbs to $1B without a jackpot winner


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The Powerball jackpot keeps getting larger because players keep losing.

It happened again Saturday night as no one matched all six numbers and won the estimated $825 million grand prize.

That means the next drawing Monday night will be for a massive $1 billion through an annuity or $497.3 million in cash.

The winning numbers Saturday night were: white balls 19, 31, 40, 46, 57 and the red power ball 23.

A Florida ticket holder scooped up $2 million by matching all five white balls and six tickets won $1 million each, including two in California, two in Michigan, one in Maryland and one in Texas.

Monday’s increased jackpot will remain the fifth-largest in U.S. history.

The biggest prize was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won by three ticketholders in 2016.
