The Powerball drawing Saturday did not produce any grand prize winners for the $640 million jackpot. The cash option is worth $546 million.
The Mega Millions prize is the third largest jackpot in United States history. The next drawing is Wednesday night. Since then, 35 drawings have been held without a top prize victor, including Saturday night. That would be the third-largest jackpot ever if there's a victor of the top prize for the drawing on Tuesday.
The dueling jackpots combine for over $1.5 billion, the highest they have been since October 2018 when the $1.537 billion Mega Millions jackpot was hit in SC. Those tickets were sold in California (two), Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Texas (three) and West Virginia. They were sold in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania.

The wind continued to shift left throughout the race and American Magic, as the leading boat, was well positioned to capitalize. At first the wind dropped and the sea state improved to aid salvage efforts.
To win the jackpot, players must pick 5 winning numbers out of 70 in total and also match the Mega Ball number which is 1 out of 25.
The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1.
