Powerball winning numbers drawn as jackpot soars to $394 million
Powerball jackpot soared to $394 million on Saturday night after the previous drawing failed to produce a winner.
The winning numbers were 5, 10, 21 34 and 58, lottery officials said. The Powerball was 33. It was not yet known whether anyone had won.
Powerball jackpots start at $40 million and grow until at least one player comes up with the winning number at a drawing.
The jackpot winners receive either payments over 29 years or a smaller cash lump sum. The cash option for the jackpot was in excess of $250 million.
The biggest Powerball jackpot awarded by the Multi-State Lottery Association was $590.5 million and went to the holder of a single winning ticket in 2013. The association also operates the Mega Millions jackpot, which awarded a top prize of $656 million three years ago.
Game drawings for Powerball, played in 44 states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands, are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. in Tallahassee, Florida.
Powerball ticket costs $2. The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are one in 175 million.
