Powerball soars to almost $500 million

The Powerball lottery jackpot for Saturday

There were no jackpot winners in Wednesday night's PowerBall drawing, pushing the projected jackpot up to $495 million for Saturday night's drawing.

A jackpot victor will match numbers on all five white balls and the Powerball.

The Powerball jackpot is nearing half a billion dollars and Missouri has a little bit of lady luck on its side. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $300.2 million. Those numbers were 69, 36, 45, 47 and 18.

· There were 1,468,589 tickets sold in the drawing that won at least $4. The Power Play multiplier was three.

· In Michigan, one ticket sold won $50,000. Powerball: 14. Power Play 3x. Now, he's going to chill out.

Mike Weirsky, who won $273 million in a drawing last week, initially forgot the jackpot ticket at the QuickChek.

There were no jackpot winners in Saturday's lottery, but more than 36,000 people won prizes in IL after the drawing. The last jackpot was won December 26 by David Johnson, a 56-year-old supermarket worker from Brooklyn, New York, who hit for a $298.3 million jackpot.

Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
