Saturday's jackpot was the fourth largest in Powerball's history.
If you matched all six Powerball numbers Saturday, you'll be hauling in the fourth highest jackpot in the lottery's history. A whopping $325 million was on the line after the previous 14 drawings failed to produce a winner. Saturday's winning numbers were: 22, 32, 37, 44 and 50. The Powerball selected was 34. Win and thinking about taking the lump sum payout? You'll have to settle for $212.8 million. No winner tonight could push Wednesday's drawing to $425 million, topping August's big prize of $337 million. The odds of winning the grand prize is 1 in 175,223,510, according to the JSOnline.
The winning ticket was sold in Lapeer, Michigan. Whomever holds that lucky ticket just got a couple hundred million dollars richer.
