Usually, three times is the charm but for one lucky lotto winner, all it took was one! Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.
Spring is in the air.
And dollars are up for grabs. Try $638.8 million.
The drawing for the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot in history – and the seventh-largest prize of any game played in the U.S. – was Saturday night.
And the winning numbers: 24, 25, 52, 60 and 66, with a Powerball of 5.
There was no word yet if anyone matched all six numbers.
The odds of winning the big prize: 1 in 292,201,338.
No one matched all six numbers Wednesday night, in which the jackpot grew to $562.1 million.
Four players across the country, including one in Florida, won $1 million for matching the first five balls, and one player in South Carolina won $2 million by playing the multiplier.
Saturday’s jackpot would be the largest payday of any game so far in 2019. A New York player claimed the $437 million Mega Millions jackpot on New Year’s Day.
