Will you next time? and what would you do if you won?

Despite a nationwide ticket-buying frenzy that drove the jackpot to about $950 million, there were no tickets sold in last night’s Powerball lottery drawing, meaning that Wednesday’s record-setting jackpot is expected to climb. As of last check, the Powerball total is hovering at $1.5 billion dollars.

 

The numbers drawn at 7:59 p.m. were 16, 19, 32, 34, 57, with the Powerball number 13.

 

In California, six tickets matched the first five numbers, but missed the Powerball number

 

Those tickets — two of which were bought in Nipton and Mountain Pass in San Bernardino County — will be a handsome consolation prize of almost $780,000 each..

 

The 19th Powerball drawing since the most recent jackpot winner in early November.

 

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number are about 1 in 293 million, according to the Powerball website. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

 

The Powerball game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
