With no winners, Powerball jackpot grows to record $1.3 billion

Publish date:

No one won the Powerball jackpot Saturday night – and now the jackpot has grown to a record $1.3 billion.

Yes, you read that right: $1.3 billion.

That's an estimated cash value of $806 million, Powerball's website shows. The next drawing is Wednesday.


The winning numbers Saturday night were 16-19-32-34-57 and the Powerball number 13, according to the Minnesota Lottery, but no one matched all six numbers, which caused the jackpot to grow – again.

Minnesotans won some money

An official with the Texas Lottery told ABC News Sunday that 25 players won $1 million and three others won $2 million. None of those tickets were sold in Minnesota, but according to Powerball's website, 263,866 tickets sold in the state won some money.


The record-breaking jackpot has been getting a lot of attention across the country and in Minnesota. On Saturday afternoon, the $2 tickets were selling at $8,643 per minute, Minnesota Lottery officials said.

So many people bought tickets across the country that the Multi-State Lottery Association, which runs the Powerball, expected roughly 75 percent of the possible 292.2 million number combinations had been purchased before Saturday night's drawing, The Associated Press reports.


Minnesota has had 22 Powerball jackpot winners since 1992, the Minnesota State Lottery says. Paul White of Ham Lake was the last Minnesotan to win. He claimed a third of the $450 million jackpot in 2013.
