The biggest jackpot in U.S. lottery history just grew to $1.4 billion.
Strong sales for Wednesday night's drawing boosted the Powerball jackpot from the previous total of about $1.3 billion, the Texas lottery said Monday. The lump sum cash payout would be $867.9 million, it said.
The winner could also opt to receive the entire jackpot in annuities over 30 years. It will be the first U.S. lottery jackpot to reach $1 billion.
No ticket holder had all the winning numbers in Saturday night's $900 million drawing.
Saturday night's winning numbers were: 32, 16, 19, 57 and 34. The Powerball number was 13, with a multiplier of 3.
