Powerball winners 2016

With Powerball’s jackpot now at $1.5 billion and likely to soar even higher by Wednesday’s drawing, the U.S. multi-state lottery is offering the world’s richest grand prize that could go to a single ticketholder, officials said on Sunday.

The pot pushed higher when no ticket holder had the winning combination of six numbers selected during Saturday’s drawing, when the grand prize reached nearly $950 million.

“It’s crazy how big this jackpot is,” said Alex Traverso, a spokesman for the California Lottery, confirming that the current Powerball prize was record setting. “Buckle up: It’s going to be a crazy ride between now and Wednesday night.”

But even with a flood of new tickets in the contest, nobody has beaten the 1 in 292 million odds of matching all six winning numbers.

The next drawing is set for Saturday at 11 pm ET.

The current jackpot has been growing since Nov. 7, 2015.

Powerball is sold in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
