Powerball jackpot grows to record $1.9 billion

Still waiting.

Powerball’s lottery jackpot grew to $1.9 billion after no ticket matched all six winning numbers during Saturday night’s drawing.

Just after 11 p.m., Powerball announced the monumental winning digits were 28, 45, 53, 56, 69 and 20. The jackpot was worth $1.6 billion.

Lottery players might have had big dreams to become billionaires but they had only a 1 in 292 million chance of winning the jackpot, officials said.

The massive winnings continued to grow stupendously as the Powerball series hit its 40th consecutive run without a grand prize winner striking gold since Aug. 3.

The jackpot climbed to a record-breaking $1.6 billion Thursday — a $782.4 million cash value — marking the third time the lotto had ever surpassed $1.5 billion in the US.

The Powerball jackpot reached an estimated $1.6 billion on Friday, making it the largest jackpot ever.

Though there were no grand prize winners earlier this week, several players made off with $2 million after hitting all five numbers while multiple others took home $1 million for matching the five numbers without the multiplier.

The mouth-watering grand prize enticed thousands of players to try their luck, including those who normally don’t gamble, including deli owners who were selling the tickets.
