Quote:(Reuters) - There was no winner in the most recent Powerball lottery draw, the operator of the multistate game said on Thursday, with the jackpot now climbing to an estimated $675 million - one of the largest in North American history.
No Powerball ticket holder had all six numbers to claim Wednesday's $500 million prize, the Multi-State Lottery Association said on its website.
The jackpot will continue to increase, with the next draw to be held on Saturday, it said.
It says $500 mil, but it was actually $540 mil. The 500 figure was the estimated amount. Saturday's jackpot could easily surpass $700 mil.
I will definitely buy my ticket.
$2 for a chance to win that much?
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
