$625M jackpot at stake in Saturday Powerball drawing

Several players won $1 million, but no one won the $638 million Powerball jackpot for the drawing held on Saturday, Mar. 23.

The jackpot was last claimed in late December, and since then there have been 24 drawings without a jackpot victor.

Now, it will continue to grow.

With no one picking the jackpot winning numbers, Wednesday's drawing goes up to $750 million with a cash value of $465.5 million.

Two other tickets sold in Florida and Wisconsin won $2 million because they included the Power Play option for an additional $1.

The response from some Muslim countries went further, blaming politicians and the media for stoking that hatred. A number of improvised explosive devices found on a vehicle after the shootings were defused by police.

Players win by correctly matching five numbers from a field of 69 - as well as the Powerball number, which players choose from 26 numbers.

It is the seventh largest jackpot in USA lottery history.

Taking the cash up front in the next drawing would get you about $380 million (before taxes), while an annuity would get you the full amount (also, before taxes) in installments across 30 years.

According to the game's official website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.

Brian says he's seen customers buy 25 to 50 tickets at a time this week. The amount you win drops dramatically after this. The drawing is held at 7:59 p.m. And in February 2015, TL Management Trust, Andrew Weber, trustee of Austin, claimed a portion of the $564.1 million jackpot prize.
