The Powerball lottery jackpot grew to more than half a billion dollars Saturday after no one claimed the prize week after week.
A fortunate player did not end up taking home $629.1 million in Saturday’s drawing, with a cash option of $310.6 million.
Powerball shared on their website that once again, no one won the accumulating sum.
The winning numbers drawn Saturday night were 7, 23, 24, 32, 43 with a red Powerball number of 18. The Power Play multiplier was 2X.
This is the 34 consecutive drawing without a lucky winner.
The hefty jackpot continued to rise after no ticket matched the winning six numbers during Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing.
Jackpot for Monday, July 10, drawing will be $650 Million with cash value of $328.3 million.
The last Powerball jackpot was won on April 19 when a ticket in Ohio matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a prize worth $252.6 million.
In November 2022, a single ticket sold in California won the largest Powerball jackpot on record, worth $2.04 billion, after matching all six numbers.
