DES MOINES, Iowa No one hit the Powerball jackpot on Saturday, so the money will roll over: A cool $400 million for the next drawing.
While hefty, the prize for Wednesday's drawing is still well below the.
Gloria C. Mackenzie, of Zephyrhills, Fla., where the winning ticket was sold May 18, took a single lump sum payment of just over $370 million, Florida Lottery officials said. After paying 25 percent for federal income taxes, Mackenzie took home about $270 million, officials said.
She bought her winning Powerball ticket after another customer let her get ahead in line.
The winning numbers Saturday were 21, 24, 36, 42 and 45; the Powerball was 15.
The odds of matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
