No ticket holder on Saturday matched the five winning numbers 11, 12, 17, 39, 40 and Powerball 5, sending the jackpot sailing past the nine-digit barrier and well into head-turning territory.
Although there was no jackpot winner, five ticket holders â€“ from California, Iowa, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island â€“ did match five balls to win $1 million each. Unfortunately none of them had decided to gamble on Power Play and, if they had, theyâ€™d be taking home $2 million each instead.
Deadline Day For Powerball Winner
Meanwhile, you may remember from our news report on Saturday that time is nearly up for the mystery Powerball winner who has a ticket worth $1 million tucked away, perhaps in an old pair of jeans or deep in their carâ€™s glove box.
The ticket was purchased from the Circle K store in Jeffersonville, Indiana, for the April 10 draw and matched all five main numbers: 1, 36, 40, 52 and 53.
The ticket holder has until by 5pm today local Indiana time to present their ticket at state lottery HQ in Indianapolis or the prize will be forfeit.
So donâ€™t delay, search high and low for that missing ticket as weâ€™re really down to the wire with this one â€“ weâ€™d hate for someone to miss out this some life-changing windfall!
