Powerball Jackpot Climbs to $240 Million

Knoxville (WVLT) -- The next Powerball jackpot will be worth $240 million after Saturday evening's jackpot of $205 million was not won.

More than $56.7 million in tickets were sold for Saturday's drawing whose numbers were 1, 5, 26, 32, 38, with a Powerball 30 and Power Play multiplier of 5.

Powerball officials suggest that all players carefully check their tickets after every drawing as tens of thousands of ticket buyers win each drawing on different prize levels other than the jackpot.

Powerball is now played in 29 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The next drawing is Wednesday, January 24th. Its cash option will be $114 million.
