• Powerball jackpot rises to $270M


    The Powerball jackpot has grown to $270 million for Saturday’s drawing.

    The prize grew after no one matched all six numbers in the multistate lottery drawing Wednesday night. The winning numbers were: 21, 22, 26, 30 and 57. The Powerball was 27.

    Though no one hit the jackpot, one Powerball ticket sold in New Jersey won $1 million because it matched five of the six winning numbers, according to the Powerball website. Three other tickets sold in Nebraska, Ohio and Pennsylvania won $2 million using the Power Play. The extra $1 feature allows winners to increase the original prize amount.

    The estimated cash value for Saturday’s jackpot is $175.6 million. You can watch the live drawing at 11 p.m. only on Channel 2, right before the Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat.
