The Powerball drawing for Saturday, March 23, 2019, has reached $625 million.

Taking the cash up front in the next drawing would get you about $465 million (before taxes), while an annuity would get you the full amount (also, before taxes) in installments across 30 years.

If you've won less than $600, you can turn in your winning ticket at a lottery retailer in exchange for cash, according to Mega Millions' website.

If no Saturday's drawing doesn't produce a victor, the jackpot will roll over once again to Wednesday. The sum is the third-largest Powerball jackpot ever. The Powerball jackpot went unclaimed. It was the seventh-largest jackpot in USA lottery history.

The New Oculus Rift S Stops Short Of Being Truly Exciting
Individual eye lenses get a boost from 1,080 x 1,200 pixels to 1,280 x 1,440 pixels compared with the original Rift. But Oculus promised it was working on a successor to the original Rift from 2016, so here it is: the Oculus Rift S.

The winning combination for the $638 million prize is 24, 25, 52, 60, 66, and the Powerball is 5. Not a lot, but enough to buy yourself a couple more tickets.

According to a press release, the ticket was sold at the Lowell Mini Mart on McAdenville Road in Lowell and matched all five white balls drawn.

Saturday night's Powerball drawing was held at 11 p.m. EST. No one has all five winning numbers, plus the power ball.

The victor has six months to claim their prize.
