DES
MOINES,

Another
night,
another
unclaimed
giant
lottery
jackpot.

Wednesday
night’s
Powerball
jackpot
was
worth
at
least
$550
million
and
grew
to
an
estimated
$640
million
without
a
winner
heading
into
the
next
drawing
Saturday.
Numbers
for
Wednesday
night’s
Powerball
drawing
were:
4-19-23-25-49
and
a
Powerball
of
14.

The
Powerball
prize
drawing
was
only
a
day
after
no
one
won
a
$625
million
Mega
Millions
jackpot,
causing
that
prize
to
grow
to
$750
million
ahead
of
the
next
drawing
on
Friday
night.

The
Mega
Millions
prize
is
now
the
fifth-largest
in
U.S.
history.

It’s
only
the
second
time
both
of
the
national
lottery
games
have
topped
$500
million.

The
prizes
have
grown
so
massive
because
it
has
been
months
since
anyone
has
matched
all
six
numbers
and
won
either
jackpot.
The
odds
of
winning
it
all
are
incredibly
small,
at
1
in
292.2
million
for
Powerball
and
1
in
302.5
million
for
Mega
Millions.

The
jackpots
listed
by
the
lotteries
are
for
winners
who
opt
to
be
paid
through
an
annuity
over
30
years.
Nearly
all
winners
take
the
cash
option,
which
is
less.
