US Powerball jackpot jumps to record-breaking $1.9bn after no one wins

A record Powerball jackpot grew to an even larger $1.9bn (£1.67bn) after no one won the lottery drawing on Saturday night.

The numbers for the drawing were: white balls 28, 45, 53, 56, 69 and red Powerball 20. The next chance for someone to get lucky will be Monday night.

The Powerball prize keeps getting more massive because of the inability of anyone to overcome the long odds of 1 in 292.2 million and win the jackpot. To take the top prize, players must buy a $2 (£1.76) ticket and match all five white balls as well as one red Powerball.

Since someone won the prize on 3 August, there have been 40 drawings without a winner. That matches a record for draws without a winner, along with a run of drawings last year, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association based in Clive, Iowa.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
