US Powerball lottery jackpot hits $50m
Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is an estimated $50m after no ticket won the top prize in the most recent draw.
The winning numbers in Saturday’s draw were 12-17-45-54-58 with a Powerball of 13.
Players in Florida, Michigan, North Dakota, New Jersey and North Carolina matched just the five main numbers to win $1m each, although no tickets managed to win $2m for matching the same numbers with a Power Play multiplier.
There were just over 560,000 prize winners in total, with non-jackpot payouts reaching over $8.7m.
Powerball tickets cost $2 each, although players can purchase an extra $1 Power Play feature to multiply any non-jackpot winnings.
