Powerball lottery jackpot soars to $414M for Saturday drawing

The Powerball jackpot will inch closer to half a billion dollars after no one won the $414 million drawing on Saturday. Each match five victor automatically wins $2 million.

Tickets can be purchased until Saturday evening and cost $2 each. The winning $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot victor didn't come forward for more than four months until recently in SC. Players are tasked with picking six numbers from two different number pools; the first five are from one pool and the final Powerball number is from a separate pool.

The next drawing will be on Wednesday, March 13.
