Nobody won Powerball prize; jackpot soars to $1.3 billion

Saturday night’s winning Powerball numbers are 32-16-19-57-34. The Powerball number is 13.

There were no jackpot winners for Saturday’s drawing, so the jackpot has soared to $1.3 billion!

There were two “Match 5 Power Play” $2 million winners in Connecticut and Texas. Additionally, there were “Match 5” $1,000,000 winners in Virginia as well as Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Powerball set a record for the biggest jackpot ever when it reached a staggering $900 million Saturday. The previous largest winning jackpot was in 2012 with a MegaMillions game that was worth $656 million.

The current Powerball jackpot hit $700 million on Thursday after nobody won on Wednesday night — the 18th drawing without a winner.

The current jackpot has been growing since November 7. It first broke into the top 10 largest jackpots ranking last weekend, when it hit $400 million. Since then ticket sales have only taken off.

Powerball is sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
