US Lottery Jackpot Reaches World Record $1.6 Billion

No jackpot has ever been bigger – nowhere else in the world: the US Powerball Lottery draws a record-winning card on Saturday night.

In the United States, the jackpot in the Powerball lottery has grown to $1.6 billion, making it the largest jackpot in the world in lottery history. The lottery operator said before the next draw on Saturday night that the Powerball jackpot is now “the largest lottery prize ever offered in the world.”

The jackpot has grown steadily since there was another winner in early August. Since then, in 39 draws, no player has been able to pick six correct numbers.
