Somebody has to win it sooner or later, right?
No ticket had all the correct numbers in the record Saturday Powerball drawing, so the jackpot for Monday night will be a staggering $1.9 billion — the richest jackpot in lottery history.
The Saturday winning numbers were: 28, 45, 53, 56, 69 and a red Powerball of 20.
The cash prize was $782.4 million.
About 9,000 people bought tickets at the Lotto Store at Primm Lotto on Saturday alone and 18,000 in the past week. The line started forming at 5 a.m. Saturday for the 8 p.m. drawing.
