Powerball prize jumps to $900 million after no jackpot winner is drawn

Another Powerball draw ended without a winner on Saturday night, pushing the jackpot to around $900 million.

No ticket for Saturday’s draw matched the winning combination: white balls 2, 9, 43, 55, 57 and red Powerball 18. The jackpot was estimated at $875 million.

Ticket buyers for Monday’s draw have a chance to receive either $900 million paid out in annual installments or a one-time lump sum of $465.1 million before taxes.

The jackpot will continue to grow until someone wins.

The game’s abysmal odds of 1 in 292.2 million are designed to create big prizes that attract more players. The biggest Powerball jackpot was $2.04 billion in November.

The last time anyone won the Powerball jackpot was on April 19 for a top prize of almost $253 million. Since then, no one has won the grand prize in the last 37 consecutive draws.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
