A Dozen Illinoisans Come Within One Number Of $600M Powerball Jackpot

CHICAGOSTMW) — One number in Saturday night’s Powerball drawing was the difference for a dozen Illinois players between being $10,000 richer and living the life of a multi-millionaire.

The record-setting grand prize for Saturday night’s drawing was $590,500,000 and just one player, who bought their ticket in Florida, matched all the numbers to collect that prize, according to the Illinois Lottery.

The winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing were: 10 – 13 – 14 – 22 and 52, and the Power Ball number was 11.

Among Illinois players, 12 people matched four of five numbers and the Power Ball, and they will each collect $10,000, according to the Illinois Lottery. Another 485 Illinois players managed to match four of five numbers without the Power Ball, and they will each receive $100.

The next Powerball drawing, with a jackpot of $40 million, will be held on Wednesday.
