There were no jackpot winners on Saturday. However, five tickets matched 5 numbers, but not the red Powerball number.
Those tickets were purchased in Delaware, Georgia, North Carolina and New York. Each won $1 million. The payout amount is part of many changes to Powerball.
The Powerball jackpot on Wednesday, June 13 will be $240 million.
Lottery officials have said “big jackpots” is one of the reasons for the changes in Powerball earlier this year. Tickets are $2 each as opposed to $1 for Mega Millions.
Officials said the average jackpots would be about $250 million. But that has not really played out.
The biggest jackpot this year was $336 million, which was won Feb. 13 in Rhode Island.

According to the Powerball website, “Powerball is a combined large jackpot game and a cash game. Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time, we draw five white balls out of a drum with 59 balls and one red ball out of a drum with 35 red balls. Draw sales cut off at least 59 minutes before the draw.”
The jackpot is won by matching all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball. Each ticket costs $2.
The second prize (won by matching five white balls in any order) is $1 million.
The overall odds of winning a prize in the game are approximately 1 in 32.
