Saturday's Powerball numbers are: 16-54-57-62-69 and Powerball: 23.

The prize for Friday's Mega Millions contest in the United States has soared to $1 billion, representing the largest jackpot in global lottery history if claimed by a single victor. The victor can also opt for a cash prize of more than $354 million, from which the federal government will take 25% right away, and more later. Many hopefuls haven't played before.

Powerball, which held the record for the largest US lottery prize of £1.213 billion ($1.586 bn) in 2016, will hold a separate draw on Saturday.

The next drawing will be Tuesday.

A Spanish lottery called El Gordo typically generates a larger purse than Mega Millions or Powerball, but that money is split between many different winners and no single prize in El Gordo approaches the size of the latest Mega Millions jackpot, Elkin said.

If more than one victor is picked, the jackpot would be divided proportionately, as happened when the previous Mega Millions record of £502 million ($656m) was drawn in March 2012 and was shared by winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland, a lottery official said.

One lucky Bronx resident is all smiles today because they are one of the lucky winners of the Mega Million lottery jackpot.

The nation's largest lottery jackpots have now rolled for a few months.

The 24 semi-weekly Mega Millions drawings have failed to produce a top victor since July 24, when an 11-member office pool in Santa Clara County, California, shared a $543 million jackpot.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11.

In Florida and Tennessee, two people won $2 million, while seven others took home $1 million in seven other states including Indiana. The game is played in 44 states, Puerto Rico, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The game, which was created in 2002, has seen changes over the years that have reduced the chances of winning, meaning bigger and bigger jackpots.
