Powerball Winning Numbers Saturday, May 7

The numbers for tonight's Powerball jackpot, which climbed to $415 million, are: 5 25 26 44 66 and the Powerball number is 9.

Kelly Cripe, a spokeswoman, said the exact location of where the winning ticket was sold should be known later Sunday.

It is the second-biggest jackpot this year, behind the more than $1 billion jackpot that was won in January.

Powerball numbers are drawn each week on Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 pm ET.

It was the largest jackpot for any US lottery since January, when three Powerball tickets split a record $1.6 billion.

Someone, somewhere, is holding on to the sole winning Powerball lottery ticket that was sold in New Jersey and is worth an eye-popping 430 million dollars (£298.6m). This drawing follows 18 consecutive drawings with no victor, Reuters reported Saturday.

Millions of Americans are hoping they are the winners of Saturday night's $415 million Powerball drawing.

Even just guessing the Powerball number, which will get you $4, is hard - the odds are 1 in 38.

Thursday, the lottery officials announced that the jackpot has rolled over to $415 million.

Now, should you win the jackpot, winners must decide between taking a lump sun on an annuity paid out across a 30-year period. There was no immediate word on whether anyone had the winning combination. Each ticket costs $2, and players can pay an extra $1 to increase the smaller prizes they might win.
