PITTSBURGH (KDKA/AP) — Dreaming of a life of luxury?
More than $448 million is up for grabs in Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing. It’s not the biggest jackpot in history, but who’s complaining?
Alright, got your tickets? The winning numbers are: 5, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball is: 32.
Just before the numbers were drawn, Powerball officials announced that the jackpot previously pegged at $425 million had grown to an estimated $448 million.
The allure of capturing such a rich jackpot has had players in a ticket-buying frenzy, further confirming Powerball players often don’t get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks.
A recent game change increased the frequency of huge jackpots, and Wednesday’s third largest-ever jackpot comes only months after the biggest Powerball jackpot in history — a $590 million pot won in Florida.
