No winner! Powerball lottery jackpot soars to $1.3 billion
DES MOINES, Iowa — If a potential jackpot of nearly $950 million wasn’t enough reason to buy a Powerball lottery ticket, then how about $1.3 billion?
No jackpot-winning numbers were drawn Saturday, January 9th for what’s already the biggest price in U.S. lottery history so $1.3 billion or more will be the top prize Wednesday, January 13th. The lump sum prize is estimated at $806 million.
Wisconsin had nine lucky players from the Saturday Powerball drawing that each won $50,000.
