Winning Numbers Drawn in Powerball Jackpot


May 18, 2013

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lottery officials have announced winning numbers in a near-historic Powerball jackpot.

The numbers drawn Saturday are: 22, 10, 13, 14, 52 and a Powerball of 11.

Officials estimate the jackpot at $590.5 million.

With four of every five possible combinations of Powerball numbers in play, someone is almost sure to win the game's highest jackpot. The problem, of course, is those same odds just about guarantee the lucky person won't be you.

The chances of winning the prize remain astronomically low: 1 in 175.2 million. That's how many different ways you can combine the numbers when you play.

But since about 80 percent of the possible combinations have been purchased, lottery officials say it's likely the winning ticket could be selected.
