Select Sport Football Basketball Baseball Hockey Soccer College High School Crime U.S. The jackpot for Wednesday's Powerball drawing has grown to $1.4 billion, the world's largest lottery prize. The Iowa-based Multi-State Lottery Association a€” which runs the drawing a€” has weathered a jackpot-fixing investigation involving its former security director, Eddie Tipton, and led the group's board to strip its executive director, Charles Strutt, of his duties. Charles Strutt was stripped of his duties as the executive director of the Multi-State Lottery Association in October. Tipton was convicted in July of fraud for working with associates to attempt to claim a fixed $16.5 million jackpot.
Investigators announced in October that they uncovered new evidence showing Tipton working to fix jackpots and claim other prizes worth millions in Colorado and Wisconsin, and the case has expanded to include jackpots in Oklahoma and Kansas.
Strutt has not been accused of any crimes, and testified for the prosecution during the July trial against Tipton. The Iowa-based Multi-State Lottery Association has weathered a jackpot-fixing investigation involving its former security director, Eddie Tipton. More than 440 million tickets were sold for Saturday's drawing, which featured a jackpot of $949.8 million, according to the Texas-based lottery watchdog Lotto Report.
For Lotto Report founder Dawn Nettles, the sales volume suggests that a winning ticket should have emerged Saturday, as 292 million combinations of numbers can be created using the five white balls and red Powerball.


Those tickets are often duplicated, meaning lottery players are receiving the same losing numbers as players in other states, Nettles said. Nettles doesn't believe that there's any correlation between the jackpot-fixing scandal and Powerball results, but she says the lack of a winner reveals that many customers are flushing their money away without a genuine chance to win. Powerball was retooled in October to include more white balls but fewer red Powerballs a€” meaning improved odds to win any prize, but longer odds at netting a jackpot. While no one matched all of Saturday's winning numbers a€” 16-19-32-34-57 and Powerball number of 13 a€” some people gained a little wealth: 25 tickets won $1 million by matching five numbers, and three other tickets won $2 million because they paid extra to multiply smaller prizes. May 12, 2016 – The Powerball jackpot continues to grow as no tickets were able to match all six numbers in the May 11th drawing. Overall 468,673 Powerball tickets proved to be winners Wednesday night, scoring about $3.68 million in prize money. MILWAUKEE -- It doesn't happen with the Megabucks drawing very often, but someone in Milwaukee is $22 million richer!
The Megabucks drawing happens twice a week -- on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Saturday night’s winning Megabucks numbers were 21, 22, 34, 36, 40, 43. Kurt Beatovic comes into the A & I Services convenience store near 51st and Howard Avenue in Milwaukee every day.
Beatovic hasn't won anything yet -- but he says he's thrilled to hear the convenience store sold the winning Megabucks ticket this weekend.
The last time the Wisconsin Lottery saw a large jackpot winner was January 14th, 2012, when a Madison man won $14.4 million. He didn't win, but the fact that someone did has pushed Conley to buy more tickets this week.


As for this weekend's winner, that person has 180 days from Saturday's drawing to claim the prize at the Lottery’s headquarters in Madison.
Retailers who sell winning tickets over $599 receive an incentive of 2% of the winning ticket amount up to $100,000.
States which participate in lotteries such as Powerball receive a cut of the profits left over from jackpots and operating expenses. Eastern Time, and the estimated $50 million annuity jackpot carries with it a $33.1 million cash value.
Wisconsin Lottery officials say they're waiting for the winner of the drawing Saturday, May 30th to come forward.
Once the winning ticket is validated, the winner then has up to 60 days to choose how to receive the money -- in 25 yearly installments, or a one-time lump sum of $15.7 million.
