TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Saturday night marked the first Powerball drawing of 2022 — but nobody won the jackpot of more than $500 million.
The jackpot is now up to $522 million, with a cash value of $371.5 million. No one sad won the Powerball jackpot for 38 drawings in a row. The next drawing is set for Monday.
The winning numbers were 6, 12, 39, 48 and 50. The Powerball was 7 and the multiplier was 2x. A ticket sold in Maryland was worth $2 million, and three tickets sold in Arizona, California and Florida were worth $1 million each.
While the jackpot this time is large, the chance of winning all that money remains minuscule at one in 292.2 million. The odds of winning in general are 1 in 24.9. It's not uncommon to have months go by without a grand prize winner.
Curious about the largest jackpot ever? Powerball says it holds the world record for largest jackpot. The record $1.586 billion payout, set in 2016, was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
Since Aug. 23, Powerball drawings have been held three times a week to increase interest and grow prizes more quickly. Drawings are held each Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern.
Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets are two dollars.
