Powerball jackpot up to $435M, 10th largest in US history

The jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing has grown to an estimated $435 million, the eighth-largest in Powerball history.

The numbers have been drawn for the 10th largest lottery prize in US history.

About four months later, a Trenton woman and her seven adult children shared a $429.6 million Powerball prize.

Before the drawing Saturday night the jackpot was estimated at $447 million.

The winning numbers for the $435 million Powerball are 32, 26, 20, 38, 58.

Apple Announces watchOS 4 for Apple Watch with Siri Smart Watchface, More
Kevin Lynch, chief of Apple's software efforts, highlighted a new watch face that was "powered by Siri intelligence". Apple also introduced new summer band colours, giving customers more options to choose from.

The single winning Powerball ticket matching all six numbers was sold in California and will claim the big prize. The odds of winning $7 are 1 in 579 while the odds of winning $4 are 1 in 92. The money comes from a separate fund that is not part of the winner's jackpot.

Of course, the size of those jackpots are inflated. The estimated prize is based on a victor choosing an annuity, which pays off over 30 years.

If you choose the cash payment, the taxes are immediately taken out and you're given the remainder of your winnings in a lump sum. And of course, no matter how the winners or victor decide to accept their earnings, they'll have an enormous tax bill.

Hughes also says she sees more people come in to get tickets 30 minutes before the drawing than any other time.

Powerball and Mega Millions are now available in 44 states. That's more than they spent on music, movies, books, video games and sports tickets, combined.
