Saturday's $700 Million USA Powerball Jackpot Sets A New World Record

Last night's USA Powerball draw had the third largest jackpot in history with an amazing $524 Million up for grabs.

The winning numbers from the 6 Jan 2016 draw were as follows: 2,11,47,62,63 and the Powerball picked was 17.

Nobody was able to match all 6 numbers and so the USA Powerball jackpot rolled over to a world-record $700 Million. The draw for the record $700 Million jackpot will take place this Saturday, the 9th of January, tickets available online here.

Before the new record-breaking jackpot for Saturday's draw was announced, the world record belonged to the USA Megamillions jackpot of $656 Million from the draw dated March 30, 2012.

But after a long 4 year wait, that record has finally been broken! The previous record jackpot was shared amongst 3 winning tickets from Maryland, Illinois and Kansas.

The two massive American draws, the USA Powerball and the MegaMillions, are often in competition to see who can get the largest jackpots.

The record for the largest jackpot won from a single ticket is held by the USA Powerball. Florida pensioner Gloria McKenzie was the lucky lady who walked away with a monster $590.5 Million jackpot on the 18th of May 2013.

The USA Powerball now holds both records for having the largest jackpot win for a single ticket as well as the largest lottery jackpot in history.
