Saturday night's Powerball drawing is for a $384 million jackpot.

Powerball numbers drawn late Saturday were: 28, 36, 41, 51 and 58.

The highest all-time Mega Millions jackpot was $656 million, claimed by one person in 2012.


The cash value of tonight's jackpot is $242.9 million. No winners were immediately announced.

By late August, the Powerball had reached $758.7 million, which all went to victor Mavis Wanczyk of MA, making it the largest prize ever awarded to a single ticket.

The last time there was a Powerball jackpot victor was October 26 with a single ticket worth $191.1 million.


According to the website, powerball.net, IN lays claim to 39 jackpot winners since the game began IN 1992, totaling 10.7 percent of all jackpot winners. If there is no jackpot victor, the amount grows even larger for the next drawing.

The odds of hitting the big prize in each game are about 1 in 300 million. In August, an IL player won a $393 million jackpot. Powerball is played in all the same places, plus Puerto Rico.
