With no one hitting all the numbers in Saturday night’s Powerball drawing, the jackpot has surged again.
Now at an estimated $381 million, the top prize has been rolling higher for more than two months. (The winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing were: 1, 19, 25, 27, 68; Powerball: 21.)
Meanwhile, a single ticket sold in New Jersey nabbed the $267 million Mega Millions jackpot in that game’s Friday night drawing.
The chance of winning Powerball is about 1 in 292 million. Nevertheless, at some point, there will be a jackpot winner — and the IRS won’t waste time taking at least some of the loot.
