Powerball jackpot at $625M: What you need to know for Saturday's drawing

Powerball jackpot now at $625M — the 4th-highest prize in history

There is $625 million up for grabs in Saturday's Powerball jackpot.

The estimated lump sum payout would be $380.6 million before taxes. Those who purchase winning jackpot tickets in Pennsylvania must claim their prizes in person at Pennsylvania Lottery headquarters. The Powerball jackpot went unclaimed.

There were no winners in the drawing on Wednesday night, so the next drawing will be Saturday.

The largest prize - $1.586 billion - was awarded in January 2016 followed by the second largest prize at $758 million in August 2017 and third largest at $687 million in October 2018.

Sign your ticket and check it as soon as possible to avoid missing out on any prize you may have won. Players may buy $2 Powerball tickets for the drawing at Lottery retailers throughout the state and online at MichiganLottery.com until 9:45 p.m. the day of the drawing. There were also five tickets worth $50,000 sold in in the state, according to New Jersey Lottery officials. "Now fourth-largest, this run is starting to feel similar to the frenzy that we saw last fall".

Drawings are broadcast in Texas on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:12 p.m. No victor was selected Wednesday, helping to boost the Powerball jackpot to $638.8 million.

The first five regular numbers, which are white balls, are drawn out of a drum with 69 balls; one Powerball, or red ball, is drawn from a separate drum with 26 balls. Two other tickets, both from SC, matched all five white balls and utilized the Power Play option, doubling the winnings to $2 million.
