Powerball jackpot rises to $925 million after another drawing without a big winner
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Powerball jackpot climbed to an estimated $925 million after no one beat the immense odds and won the giant prize. The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 1, 7, 46, 47, 63 and red Powerball 7. With the latest bit of lottery losing, there now have been 30 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner, dating back to July 19 when a player in California won $1.08 billion. That winless streak is due to the tough odds of winning the Powerball jackpot, at 1 in 292.2 million. Although the game highlights the $925 million prize, that is for a winner who is paid through an annuity over 30 years. Most winners choose the cash payout option. For the next drawing Saturday night, that will be an estimated $432 million.
