Some people follow the bouncing balls of the Powerball game every week. Others of us only play the game when the jackpot becomes very large. I think that time has come. There were no big winner's in last night's Powerball multi-state lottery drawing.

That means the jackpot for the Powerball game will continue to rise. The anticipated jackpot for Saturday's drawing is estimated to be $415 million. The estimated cash payout on that jackpot will be $269.7 million.

The winning combination of numbers drawn was: 30-47-57-66-69 PB 3

The past several weeks have seen Powerball players have very little luck winning any of the big prizes offered in the game. On Wednesday's draw there were million dollar winning tickets that were sold in Florida and New York.  Of course there were countless others who did claim smaller cash prizes as there are nine different ways to win playing the game.

Saturday's drawing will be held at 9:59 PM CDT and ticket sales must be cut off by 8:59 PM CDT.  The drawing will be televised. Here is where you can watch it all unfold. If you choose to play we wish you good luck. Talk about a great Mother's Day surprise!
