DES MOINES, Iowa — No winning tickets were sold for the $460 million Powerball drawing.
The jackpot jumps to an estimated $550 million for Saturday’s drawing. That would make it the nation’s eighth largest lottery prize ever.
Powerball is played in 44 states, including Colorado, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
The $550 million prize refers to the annuity option, paid over 29 years. The cash prize would be almost $348 million.
Lottery players also can vie for another giant prize, as the Mega Millions game’s grand prize will be $418 million in Friday’s drawing.
