Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $47 Million After No Winner in Saturday's Drawing

The Powerball jackpot continues to grow after no ticket matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing. The lucky numbers were 3, 6, 39, 49, 67, with Powerball number 21 and Power Play option 2x. Although there was no grand prize winner, thousands of smaller prizes were awarded throughout the country.

With no jackpot winner, the top prize now rolls over to an estimated $47 million for the next drawing on Monday, May 13. The lump sum cash option for the jackpot is $22 million. To win the grand prize, a ticket must match all five white balls plus the red Powerball number.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are incredibly slim at 1 in 292,201,338. However, players have much better odds of winning a smaller prize. The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are about 1 in 25. In Saturday's drawing, over $4.2 million in prizes were won across the country.

Several states saw notable wins in the latest drawing. In Arkansas, three tickets matched four white balls plus the Powerball with the Power Play to win $200 each. Four tickets matched four white balls plus the Powerball to win $100 apiece. Dozens of tickets matched either four white balls or three white balls plus the Powerball for prizes ranging from $100 to $7.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in Ohio on April 19, when a lucky ticket sold at a GetGo in Macedonia matched all the numbers for a massive $252.6 million prize. The odds of hitting a $1 million winning ticket are about 1 in 11.6 million.

Powerball drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time. The $47 million jackpot up for grabs in the next drawing on May 13 is still far from the game's record prize of $2.04 billion won by a single ticket in California last November. But with millions of tickets being sold, the top prize can climb quickly as the buzz grows.
