Last month's Jackpot Powerball saw a lucky winner claiming the $478 million prize, and from that point onwards, the money pot has been constantly growing in size. If you managed to hit the lucky numbers for this drawing, you're looking at a massive payout of $56.9 million.
Though the numbers we're seeing right now are nowhere near the massive $1.6 billion jackpot from last month, they are nothing to be sneezed at.
Without any further ado, here are Saturday's winning numbers: 44, 38, 64, 69, 60. Powerball is 6.
Jackpot Powerball drawings are scheduled for every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59pm Eastern time. Each ticket sets you back by $2, and you have precisely one in 292,201,338 odds to win the grand prize. If you manage to hit the numbers and the Powerball number (in any order), the jackpot is yours!
The game is accessible in 44 states, as well as the District of Columbia, the US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. You can watch the drawing live on several channels, YouTube, your mobile phone – or you can check the results on our site!
If you feel like taking a shot, you may want to avoid picking the numbers yourself and let the computer do the work for you. According to the words of the Multi-State Lottery Association (the one behind Jackpot Powerball), as much as 75% of winning combinations were randomly chosen by the computer.
In case you manage to win the big prize, you may want to think long term and avoid embarking on a manic spending spree, no matter how tempting it may sound. Financial experts usually recommend making some long-term investments. Anything in the ballpark of a 3-4% return on your investment is fine, and if you're careful with it, you may be able to live off those returns alone for the rest of your life.
