Powerball jackpot rises to $320 million

NOBODY PLAYING POWERBALL lotto in Washington state and 44 other lottery jurisdictions hit all six numbers Wednesday night, meaning that Saturday night’s game has a jackpot of at least $320 million

Wednesday evening’s numbers drawn were 13-14-17-43-54, Powerball: 15

Saturday’s drawing is scheduled for 7:59 p.m. following a ticket sales cutoff of 7 p.m.

To win, a $2 ticket must match five numbers in any order plus a sixth specific Powerball number. The odds of winning are 1 in 175 million.

If the jackpot is won by a single ticket-holder, the winner can get the $320 million in a 29-year annuity or take a lump-sum prize estimated at $198.3 million, Powerball officials said.

The game is played in Washington state and 42 other states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
