Here are Saturday’s winning numbers:
22-42-45-55-56, Powerball: 14, PowerPlay: 3X
The estimated jackpot is $257 million. The lump sum payment before taxes would be about $153.4 million. If there is no jackpot winner, the amount grows even larger for the next drawing.
The prize amount has grown steadily since the March 24 Powerball drawing. A single winning ticket worth $55.9 million was sold in Louisiana.
Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions.
