(Updated at 11:05 p.m.) Since a $155 million jackpot was won on Wednesday, the Powerball jackpot starts over tonight and stands at $40 million. There have been much larger jackpots, but you wouldn’t refuse it, right? The cash payout on Saturday, March 26, will be an estimated $23.9 million.

Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time. The record in the game was a $1.6 billion drawing in January 2016, which was won by a group of Tennessee workers. Just last month, on Feb. 22, a lucky player in Indiana won the $435 Powerball jackpot, the 10th largest in the game’s history.

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, March 25, are: 32, 18, 31, 48, 45, and the Powerball of 16.

Tonight’s jackpot is tiny when compared with the January 2016 record Powerball jackpot, which was worth nearly $1.6 billion. But Americans will still drop by the nearest convenience store with dreams of cash and buy a ticket. The billion-dollar-plus prize won in the Jan. 13, 2016, drawing was the largest lotto jackpot awarded in U.S. history and was split by three winners. In the summer of 2016, a New Hampshire player won a $478 million prize.

If you still want to take a chance — someone has to win, right? — you have a better chance of hitting the jackpot if you let the computer pick your numbers. The Multi-State Lottery Association, which operates the Powerball game, says about 75 percent of winning tickets are selected when the numbers are chosen by a computer.

The lottery game is played in 44 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball draws can be seen on hundreds of TV stations nationwide. It may also be available on cable or your mobile device. The draws are also posted on YouTube and on our site. Where to watch the Powerball drawing on TV.
