TAMPA BAY, Fla. — Now that the Mega Millions hype has faded, the Powerball excitement is growing and so is the jackpot. After no winner was reported Wednesday night, the jackpot has jumped to $750 million with a cash payout of $428.6 million for Saturday night's (10/27) drawing.
There's still hope for people who bought tickets in Florida. According to the Florida Lottery, there was one ticket sold that matched five numbers and is worth $1 million. Six other tickets matched four numbers and are worth at least $50,000.
Wednesday night's jackpot was set at $620 million but no one matched all five numbers and the Powerball. There's still a chance you could win something from Wednesday's drawing so be sure to check your tickets.
Here are the winning numbers:
56, 53, 45, 21, 3
