Another big Powerball payday possible this weekend

Mar 22, 2019

Lottery players get another shot at a mega-jackpot this weekend.

The top prize for Saturday night’s Powerball drawing is over $600 million.

No one matched all six numbers in Powerball's Wednesday drawing,pushing the jackpot to $625 million.

That’s the 7th largest jackpot in U.S. history, and the biggest since winners in Iowa and New York split a nearly $688 million prize last October.

Delaware hasn’t seen a Powerball jackpot winner in over two years.  The last time someone here matched all the numbers was December 20-16 when a winning ticket worth nearly $122 million was sold at a Selbyville-area gas station.
