After nobody on Wednesday night matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, it increased to an estimated $1.4 billion.
The winning numbers were 9, 35, 54, 63, and 64, and Powerball 1 was also reported. The Powerball jackpot will next be up for grabs on Saturday night, giving players another chance to break an 11-week streak without a significant winner. The odds are horrible and remain the same no matter how big the prize gets.
The jackpot’s chances of 1 in 292.2 million are what make it so difficult to win and give the lucky player (or players) who choose the game’s six winning numbers such enormous payouts.
The seventh-largest lottery prize in history is the most recent Powerball jackpot. The most recent grand prize winner occurred on July 19.
