Winning numbers from 6/29/19 were: 13-17-24-59-62

There were no grand prize winners on Saturday, so the grand prize grew even larger.

How much money is $150 million? According to the Powerball website, if that amount of money were accomplished by stacking $100 bills, it would be taller than the Great Pyramid of Egypt, which is 455-feet tall.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery and one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2.

Wednesday night we will post the Powerball 07/03/19 drawing payouts and tell if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if so.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.
