No one hit the jackpot in the latest Powerball drawing, pushing the next prize of $425 million into the history books.
The prize for Saturday night’s Powerball was $325 million — the fourth-largest in the game’s history.
The top prize now increases to an estimated $425 million, the largest in the history of the multistate lottery game. The next drawing will take place Wednesday.
In 2006, the game handed out its largest prize to date — $365 million — to eight co-workers at a Nebraska meat-packing plant.
The Powerball is held in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The prize still has a ways to go to match the U.S. record payout of $656 million, set in March by a Mega Millions jackpot that was split between three winners.AlertMe
