Saturday’s Powerball drawing has an estimated jackpot of $122 million. This Powerball jackpot is still a fraction compared to the record-setting $1.6 billion prize paid in January. But it’s still enough to cover the White Sox 2016 payroll and still have more than $7 million left over.
The lump-sum cash payout for Saturday’s Powerball drawing is estimated at $81.9 million.
What time is the Powerball drawing? Numbers are drawn at 9:59 p.m. Central time.
Winning Numbers: 23-49-57-64-67 and the Powerball is 20; the Powerplay multiplier is 2.
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.
Plays cost $2 each, and Illinois residents can buy tickets online at illinoislottery.com, at almost 8,000 retailers in the state or by using the free Illinois Lottery’s mobile app. The overall odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292,201,338, the Illinois Lottery reports.
Drawings are every Wednesday and Saturday. Powerball is played in Illinois, 43 other states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
