Powerball jackpot soars to $550 million after no winners Saturday night

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Powerball jackpot continues to soar after no one matched all the winning numbers in Saturday night's drawing.

The jackpot for Wednesday now stands at $550 million.

The winning numbers for the $495 million jackpot on Saturday night were 30, 34, 39, 53, 67 and a Powerball of 11.

The cash value of the jackpot for a single winner would have been $300.2 million.


No one has hit the jackpot since December.

This drawing came just days after the winner of a $1.5 billion jackpot, the largest Mega Millions drawing and second largest drawing in lottery history, anonymously claimed the cash prize from last October's drawing.

The last big win was back on December 26, 2018 when a truck driver from Brooklyn took home the $298.3M prize. His win marked the third consecutive Powerball jackpot win by a New Yorker in 2018.

A New Jersey man hit the $273-million Mega Millions jackpot just last week.
The biggest all-time lottery jackpot was a $1.5863 billion Powerball prize in 2016.
