Powerball numbers stay elusive; Saturday jackpot rises to $925M

Updated September 28, 2023 - 7:06 pm

No winner — again.

The eighth-largest jackpot in lottery United States history was not won Wednesday when the Powerball numbers proved elusive for the 30th consecutive drawing.

The numbers drawn were: 1-7-46-47-63 with a Powerball of 7. The multiplier was 3x.

The rollover moves the Saturday jackpot to an estimated $925 million with $432.4 million for all cash.

It will remain the eighth-largest lottery jackpot since the top seven were all worth $1 billion or more.

Four tickets matched the five regular numbers. One each was sold in California, Kansas, Maryland and New York.

$1.08B winner not yet public

Powerball’s jackpot was last won July 19 when a ticket in California matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win $1.08 billion.

The winner of that jackpot has not come forward so far, according to the California Lottery. Winners have a full year to come forward, and California Lottery officials are required to make the winner’s full name public.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are about 1 in 292 million, say lottery officials.
