Powerball Jackpot Grows To $400 Million

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Dreamers hoping to strike it rich quick plunked down $2 a ticket hoping to win a Powerball jackpot estimated to be at least $300 million.

The winning numbers for Saturday's drawing were 21, 24, 36, 42, and 45, with the Powerball 15.

There were no jackpot winners for Saturday's drawing.

 The next drawing will be Wednesday, and the revised estimated jackpot is $400 million, well below the record $590.5 million jackpot that was won in May by an 84-year-old Florida widow.

Saturday's pot was big enough, though, to attract casual players who only buy tickets when they think the payoff is big and potentially life-changing.

The odds of matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million. Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
