Powerball Jackpot reaches $400 million

Aug. 6, 2013 at 12:20 AM

CHICAGO, Aug. 6 (UPI) -- The jackpot for the next Powerball drawing stands at $400 million after no one matched the winning numbers Saturday, the multi-state lottery association said.

Saturday's winning numbers -- 21, 24, 36, 42 and 45, and Powerball number 15 -- didn't make anyone rich, making Wednesday's drawing all the more attractive, WMAQ-TV, Chicago, reported Monday.

If a single winner emerges Wednesday, the payout would be $230.3 million in cash after taxes.

Gloria C. Mackenzie, 84, of Zephyrhills, Fla., in June took home Powerball's largest payout ever -- a one-time payment of $370 million, before taxes.

The odds of an exact match of all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million.
