Saturday’s $435M Powerball prize will be 8th largest ever
Time to start dreaming big dreams again, really big dreams.
After no one won Wednesday night’s grand prize, Saturday’s estimated Powerball jackpot will be $435 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which administers the game in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
If the pot doesn’t go up before the 10:59 p.m. ET drawing, it will be the eighth largest Powerball jackpot in history, just $300,000 less than a jackpot won in February with a ticket sold in Indiana. That $435.3 million prize, won by a resident of the Lafayette, Ind., metro area who was allowed to remain anonymous, was the 10th largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever.
Saturday’s prize, which requires an exact match of five numbers from 1 to 69 and a Powerball number from 1 to 26, has about a $273 million cash value if its winner chooses to take all the money now rather than in 30 annual installments.
