Powerball Jackpot Hits Record $675M

Lottery officials said early Thursday no jackpot-winning Powerball tickets were sold in its $500 million drawing, which means someone could strike it seriously rich with $675 million on Saturday. The numbers drawn Wednesday night were 2, 11, 47, 62 and 63. The Powerball number is 17, with a multiplier of 3. Saturday’s drawing will be the largest jackpot in U.S. history, topping the $564.1 million Powerball prize last February, which was won by players from North Carolina, Texas, and Puerto Rico.
