No Powerball jackpot winner, pot to grow to $1.3 billion


Better luck on Wednesday.

There were no jackpot winners in any state in Saturday’s biggest-ever $900 million Powerball drawing, and the jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing will grow to an estimated $1.3 billion, the Texas Lottery Commission said.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 32, 16, 19, 57 and 34. The Powerball number was 13, with a multiplier of 3.

Saturday’s Powerball drawing swelled to $900 million after no one won the $500 million jackpot earlier in the week.

The odds of winning Saturday’s monster jackpot were one in 292.2 million. Powerball is played in 44 states, as well as in Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The frenzy leading up to Saturday night’s drawing was such that New York state’s gaming commission recorded $3.3 million in ticket sales per hour by 4 p.m. ET.

The jackpot began on Nov. 7 and rolled over 19 times before Saturday’s drawing, officials said.
