January 11, 2016 – US Powerball Lottery Jackpot Hits 1 Billion Dollars
The US Powerball lottery jackpot pool has jumped to a record breaking $1.3Billion after a 19th draw without a winner on Saturday night.
It means Wednesday’s jackpot will be a world record.
No one matched the numbers – 32, 16, 19, 57, 34 and Powerball number 13 – for the prize of almost $950m (£654m) which was up for grabs on Saturday.
Players must match all six numbers to win the jackpot.
