Did anyone win the $580 million Powerball jackpot?

The Powerball jackpot has been growing since early August, racking up 34 drawings without a big winner.

WASHINGTON — With no jackpot winners yet again in Saturday's drawing, the Powerball jackpot has surged past $600 million. 

The grand prize is now at $610 million for the next drawing on Monday — $292.6 million if the winner chooses the more popular cash option. The lottery game says this is the 8th biggest Powerball jackpot ever. 

Players must match all five numbers and the Powerball to win the jackpot. While no one beat the 2 in 292.2 million odds to win the jackpot Saturday, a handful of tickets matched the five numbers to win $1 million. These tickets were sold in New York, South Carolina and Texas. 

The Powerball jackpot has been growing since early August, racking up 34 drawings without a big winner.

It's not the first time this year a major lottery game has grown to eyebrow-raising levels. Americans were sent into a lottery frenzy this summer when a near-record $1.377 billion Mega Millions jackpot was up for grabs in July. Two people from Illinois came forward last month to claim that prize, but they chose to stay anonymous.

Powerball still holds the world record for largest jackpot with a whopping $1.586 billion prize won in 2016. That prize was shared by winners in Tennessee, Florida and California.
