Powerball jackpot soars to $550 million after top prize goes unclaimed

PowerBall and PowerBall Plus results, Friday, 15 March, 2019

With no one claiming the winning combination (18-36-45-47-69) on the March 13 Powerball drawing, the jackpot for tonight's draw has reached an astronomical $495 million, making it the eighth largest in Powerball history.

The drawing for that jackpot, figured to be the eighth-largest in Powerball's history, will be held Wednesday. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $335 million.

Last October, the Mega Millions jackpot soared to a record $1.5 billion. Charlie McIntyre, Powerball Product Group Chairman and Executive Director of the New Hampshire Lottery, said at the time.

One was solid in Pennsylvania and the other was in New Jersey. No one broke the bank in Saturday night's drawing. The drawing is at 7:29 p.m. Deadline is 7:08 p.m.

Powerball is offered in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Norenberg and his wife, Shelby, told lottery officials they will pay off their student loan debt, their mortgage, and will use the rest of the winnings to help with their one-year-old daughter and a new baby on the way.
