Powerball winning numbers announced for massive jackpot

The winning numbers for Saturday's Powerball jackpot were 20, 24, 26, 35 and 49 and Powerball number 19.

The total jackpot at the time was $356 million with a one-time cash option of $224 million.

By Sunday, the jackpot swelled to nearly $430 million, according to the Powerball website, because no winning ticket matched all six numbers. The next drawing will be Wednesday evening.

A single ticket matched Friday's six Mega Millions numbers, with a winning jackpot of $393 million, the fifth largest in nearly 15 years. The ticket was sold at a Nick's Barbecue in Palos Heights, Illinois, about 20 miles southwest of Chicago, lottery officials said.

The odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 258.9 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball.
