No victor in Saturday's Powerball drawing; jackpot now worth $620 million

No victor in Saturday's Powerball drawing; jackpot now worth $620 million

The victor has opted to remain anonymous, but according to the Texas Lottery Commission, the individual claimed a $5,000,020 prize.

Because no Mega Millions winners emerged, the next scheduled drawing on Tuesday was projected to be worth a record $1.6 billion.

Mega Millions set a record for lottery jackpots after nobody won the $1 billion prize on Friday.

"I'm going to be 70", said Hasenkopf.

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education use their portion of the revenue to pay down debt tied to the state's 2005 higher education capital bond issue, said Angela Caddell, a spokeswoman for the state regents.

WNDU is your official home for Mega Millions, Powerball and Hoosier Lotto.

"Pray to God I'll live another 60 years to spend that money", Ralph said.

Across the river in IN, money from the lottery sales also goes a variety of places. The big prize for Wednesday night's drawing is $620 million, or $354 million cash. Almost all winners take the cash option, which was about $904 million as of Monday morning.

Jordan says it won't renew peace treaty land deal with Israel
The deal was signed in November 1994 by Abdullah's father, King Hussein, and then-Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. After the king's announcement on Sunday, Jordanians took to social media, calling it a " historic and wise decision".


If you opt to take a lump sum payment instead of the annuity, your prize is a little more than $900 million.

"One thing I'd consider doing is still planning for your financial future; that's always important whether you have a gazillion dollars or ten dollars", says Berning.

I'll never win, but you gotta give it a shot.

But there are some quirks and surprises about the math equations that likely will soon vault someone into stratospheric wealth after the jackpots grew for months without a victor. Of the five largest jackpots awarded in the USA, three went to multiple winners.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of 11 California office workers won $543 million.

How can I receive the money if I win? "I also think that it creates a potential sense of regret to not be the one playing".

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states, as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
