CHECK your Powerball lottery tickets this week as the latest jackpot jumped more than $10 million over the weekend after there was no winner in the Saturday drawing
As of Sunday, the Powerball lottery jackpot jumped to $56 million with a cash option of $29.1 million.
The prize increase comes after there was no winner selected in the Powerball’s drawing on November 26.
The winning numbers picked during the drawing were 15, 30, 47, 50, and 51. The red Powerball power number was 3 and the power play number was 10.
Despite no winner, one Arkansas ticket buyer did take home around $1 million after matching all five white numbers, according to mlive.com.
If he had the power play number, the play would have taken home another $1 million, the outlet reported.
There were three other winners in Michigan, each scoring $1,000, mlive.com reported.
Additionally, Saturday’s drawing had 442,293 tickets win at least $4.
The next drawing will be held on Monday.
It comes just one day before the latest Mega Millions jackpot drawing which has an estimated $305 million payout as of Sunday.
The winner also has the option to take their winnings in a cash payment of $158.2 million.
Winners have one full calendar year to claim their prize and often stay anonymous when doing so.
However, only 11 states in the United States allow anonymity including Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, and Texas.
