Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $700 Million
There is no winner celebrating a Powerball win. But, there is always next time. Lottery officials say no tickets had all six numbers matched in the multi-state game. So, no one took the 500-million-dollar jackpot.
It's a nice dream but the odds of winning are pretty long. The chances of matching all six numbers is one in about 292 million. Even though there was no grand prize winner last night, there was a winning ticket worth two million bucks sold in New Mexico. There were also million dollar winners in a dozen other states.
One lucky person in Houston, Texas is waking up a million dollars richer because they matched a couple of the numbers. The next drawing is on Saturday night for $700 million.
