Powerball numbers drawn for 10th largest US lottery prize

Posted June 11, 2017

A massive $435-million jackpot is up for grabs for the lucky person who picked the winning numbers.

If the jackpot isn't won this weekend, the grand prize will climb to $510 million for the Wednesday, June 14 drawing.

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

Saturday's $447.8 million prize means that six of the 10 largest Powerball jackpots ever have happened since the start of 2016. A player also has an approximately 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers, but not the Powerball.

The odds of winning Saturday's grand prize are roughly 1 in 292 million.

About four months later, a Trenton woman and her seven adult children shared a $429.6 million Powerball prize. The money comes from a separate fund that is not part of the winner's jackpot. The estimated prize is based on a victor choosing an annuity, which pays off over 30 years. All of them say that the profits provide billions in funding to schools and other social programs.

Tickets always start flying out the doors once the jackpot gets this high, which just makes the jackpot grow even more.
