58-5-25-59-30 and powerball 32: Whoever holds those Powerball numbers has just won a share of a $448 million jackpot.
The jackpot earlier stood at $425 million, but grew and was announced at the higher number before the drawing.
If there is no winner in this round, the pot will grow even larger as more people line up to play.
The next Powerball drawing is Saturday. It is played in 43 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The multi-state lottery's most recent blockbuster winner, 84-year-old Gloria C. Mackenzie of Zephyrhills, Fla., took home a whopping $590.5 million jackpot in a May drawing thanks to computer-generated numbers. She opted for the lump-sum cash payout, which reduced her winnings to just under $371 million, according to powerball.com.
Lottery officials admit to cashing in on the frenzy.
In the case of Powerball, ticket prices doubled from $1 to $2 at the beginning of last year, also doubling the amount going into the jackpot.
Because the pots get so large so quickly, some people now won't even bat an eye until the prize reaches triple-digit millions.
In fact, chances are you've never heard of Patricia Chandler -- even though she won the Powerball in June. Chandler barely made news because she only walked away with $77 million out of a $131.5 million jackpot.Also Read
