The First Ever Jackpot Over A BILLION DOLLARS - The $1.4 Billion USA Powerball

Despite a record number of tickets being purchased for the Saturday 9th of January Powerball, not a single ticket matched the 6 winning numbers drawn during Saturday evening's draw. This past Saturday's draw was the biggest in the history of mankind, with the jackpot total increasing everyday so that by the time the draw took place, the jackpot was an unbelievable $950 Million.

PB winning numbers

It would seem with the amount of people buying tickets for this world-record draw that surely somebody would win but absolutely nobody was able to match the winning numbers. USA Powerball tickets are sold in 44 states across the country and no players from these 44 states or the millions who played from over 200 countries worldwide were able to correctly guess the winning numbers.

Although nobody was able to land the $950 Million jackpot, some lucky players were able to land the runner up prize of $1 Million plus there were numerous winners in the other prize categories. The Powerball organisers, MUSCL Group, paid over $159 Million in prizes from Saturday's draws. What happened to the rest of the money? $800 Million accumulated towards the next jackpot and with huge ticket sales coming in for the next draw, the Wednesday 13th of January draw has an estimated jackpot of $1.4 Billion!
