Powerball Jackpot Grows To $166M
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The jackpot for next Wednesday’s Powerball draw has grown to an estimated $166 million.
No numbers matched all six numbers in Saturday’s draw with a jackpot then worth $141 million.
Four tickets with five numbers (but missing the Powerball) were sold in Arizona, Kansas, Louisiana and Massachusetts. Each of those tickets is worth $1 million.
The numbers drawn Saturday were 14, 25, 27, 38, 58 and the Powerball number was 6.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Draws for the $2 game are Wednesdays and Saturdays. Powerball starts at $40 million and climbs every time there is no 6/6 winner.
The record Powerball jackpot reached $590 million in May 2013.
