Powerball jackpot rises to $1.4B

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – The record Powerball jackpot just keeps getting larger.

Lottery officials announced Monday that the grand prize is now an estimated $1.4 billion, or a $868 million cash prize.

The next drawing is Wednesday at 11 p.m.

No one matched all six Powerball numbers on Saturday – 16-19-32-34-57 and Powerball number of 13.

Twenty-five tickets won $1 million by matching five numbers. Three other tickets won $2 million because they paid extra to multiply smaller prizes.

Pennsylvania had one $1 million winner, seven winners of $150,000, and numerous $50,000 winners. The $1 million winning ticket was sold in Philadelphia. It matched the five white balls drawn but not the red Powerball

If Wednesday’s jackpot is won by a Pennsylvania player, it would become the state’s 20th multi-state jackpot win. The Pennsylvania Lottery has sold 17 jackpot-winning Powerball tickets and two jackpot-winning Mega Millions tickets.

The largest Powerball prize Pennsylvania has ever awarded was a $110.2 million cash-value jackpot claimed by a New Jersey couple in May 2004. The state’s largest Powerball group win was a $107.5 million cash jackpot shared by 48 transit workers in the Philadelphia area in April 2012.
