Powerball Jackpot Rises To $208 Million For Tonight’s Drawing
CHRISTIANSTED — The Powerball lottery jackpot has climbed to $208 million for Saturday night’s drawing. That’s because nobody matched the winning numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing.
The winning numbers drawn on Wednesday were: 5, 7, 24, 31, 39, Powerball 7.
Powerball is a combined large jackpot game which is played in 42 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m., five white balls are drawn from a drum with 59 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 35 red balls.
The odds of winning the top prize in the Powerball lottery are 1 in 175,223,510. The second prize (won by matching five white balls in any order) is $1 million paid in cash. But you have a 1 in 55 chance of winning of $4.
