Jackpot goes to record $425M


DES MOINES (WKOW) -- Lottery officials say nobody has won the Powerball Jackpot and the top prize will now increase to about $425 million for the next drawing.

This is now the largest jackpot ever for the game. A spokeswoman says sales were strong over the holiday week for Saturday's drawing, which was estimated at $325 million before the numbers were picked.

The jackpot for the drawing on Wednesday could go even higher than the estimated $425 million because sales pick up in the days before record drawings.

The Powerball numbers for Saturday were 22-32-37-44-50 and the Powerball was 34.
