The winning Powerball numbers for the $524 million jackpot are 47-02-63-62-11 and the Powerball is 17.

A lottery official says the estimated prize for this weekend's Powerball drawing is the largest jackpot of any lottery game in U.S. history, according to the Associated Press.

   Texas Lottery spokeswoman Kelly Cripe says Saturday's drawing will be worth about $675 million. That's because no one matched the numbers drawn for Wednesday night's estimated $500 million jackpot.

   The previous record was a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot won in March 2012.

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