Saturday’s Powerball Jackpot Hits $510 Million
The Powerball jackpot for the Saturday August 19th drawing has risen to an estimated $510 million, with a cash option of $324.2 million, following 19 rollovers. It is currently the fifth biggest Powerball jackpot in the history of the multi-state lottery game.
The numbers for Wednesday August 16th were 9, 15, 43, 60, 64, and Powerball 4. Although no one matched all five numbers and the Powerball, there were a total of 2,621,664 prize winners and two Match 5 tickets worth $1 million each were sold Florida and California. A player from Texas matched five main numbers with Power Play and is now $2 million richer. You can view the prize breakdown by visiting the latest Powerball Numbers page.
Saturday’s drawing will be the first time the jackpot has topped half a billion dollars since three players shared $1.58 billion in January 2016. If you were to win the full amount this weekend, you would be richer than the New Hampshire ticket holder who claimed $487 million on July 30th last year. The prize also eclipses the $488.3 million shared by a Minnesota player and two New Jersey ticket holders in August 2013.
