Powerball is yet to have its jackpot winner after Bill Swanson from Indiana won the jackpot on 23rd April. None of the tickets sold for sold for Saturday’s draw could match all the five drawn numbers & the Powerball number to win the jackpot.
The numbers drawn for Saturday’s draw were 02, 08, 40, 49 & 50. The USA Powerball number for Saturday’s draw was 36 & the Power Play number was 3. Players matching all the five drawn numbers & the Powerball number would have won a whopping $120 million in prize. Since nobody was lucky enough to win that prize on Saturday, the jackpot amount for Saturday now rolls over & the amount for Wednesday’s draw would now be $144 million.
