Powerball Jackpot Now $750 Million After No Winning Ticket Drawn

Lottery officials say the Powerball jackpot has climbed to an estimated $625 million.

"We're keeping our fingers crossed that the first Powerball jackpot victor of 2019 will be a Texan", Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery, said in a statement. That marked the fourth largest in the game's history.

The winning combination for the $638 million prize is 24, 25, 52, 60, 66, and the Powerball is 5.

Now, it will continue to grow.

That means the drawing on Wednesday, Mar. 27 will be worth $750 million with a cash option of $465.5 million.
