The Powerball lottery jackpot grew to more than half a billion dollars Saturday after no one claimed the prize week after week.
A fortunate player did not end up taking home roughly $630 million jackpot in Saturday’s drawing, with a cash option of $310.6 million.
Powerball shared on their website that once again, no one won the accumulating sum.
The winning numbers drawn Saturday night were 24-07-32-23-43 with a red Powerball number of 18. The Power Play multiplier was 2X.
This is the 34 consecutive drawing without a lucky winner.
The hefty jackpot continued to rise after no ticket matched the winning six numbers during Wednesday night's Powerball drawing.
The Monday, July 10 drawing jackpot will be $650 Million with cash value of $328.3 million.
The last Powerball jackpot was won on April 19 when a ticket in Ohio matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a prize worth $252.6 million.
