After No Winner, Powerball Jackpot Rolls to $675M, Largest in US History


powerballLottery officials said early this morning that no jackpot-winning Powerball tickets were sold in the $500 million drawing, which means someone could strike it rich with $675 million on Shabbos.

The numbers drawn in Wednesday night’s $500 million jackpot were 2, 11, 47, 62 and 63. The Powerball number is 17, with a multiplier of 3.

The jackpot will now jump to $675 million in this weekend’s drawing, the largest jackpot in U.S. history.

The biggest jackpot to date was $564.1 million Powerball prize last February, when players from North Carolina, Texas and Puerto Rico split the winnings.

Wishing much hatzlacha to all ticket holders!

  1. If I couldn’t win at least no one else did! Kidding!!
    I just hope someone wins this that has his heart where it should be. Helping the yeshivos and kollelim throughout the US and and over in EY that can do with a little help. May it be His will..

  2. Being ignorant is not the same as being machmir. What’s the malacha of picking out a random number, it’s also done by goyim for themselves. Besides, the drawing is motsoi shabos.
