Powerball Numbers Announced in Largest Lottery in US History


powerballPowerball numbers have been drawn for the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.

The winning numbers are 22, 10, 13, 14, 52 and Powerball 11.

According to a report by the Associated Press, a Lottery official claims one winning ticket was sold in Florida. Lottery officials estimate the jackpot at $590.5M.

The Powerball record in November was advertised at $550 million, but ended up being $587.5 million when the winning numbers were drawn, thanks to last-minute sales.

There had been speculation the advertised amount for the lottery would be increased to surpass $656 million – the largest jackpot in U.S. history, set by the Mega Millions jackpot in March 2012.

That prize was split between winners in Maryland, Kansas and Illinois.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot — played in 43 states, plus the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia — are about 1 in 175 million. A winning player must match five numbers along with the Powerball number.

The popular lottery has not had a winner in two months.
