“No one had the winning numbers for the estimated $524 million Powerball jackpot — 47, 2, 63, 62, 11 and the Powerball of 17 — which means Saturday’s jackpot will be an estimated $675 million, the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history,” reports ABC News.

The story adds, “The previous largest was a Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million in 2012.

“The prize surged from $450 million to $524 million Wednesday night, making it the fourth largest Powerball jackpot of all time. The payout would have had an estimated cash value of more than $300 million, before taxes, according to the Powerball website.”
