Charleston, W.Va.- The world-record run continues for Powerball after no winners on Saturday’s draw, and the jackpot climbs to $1.9 billion, with a $929.1 million cash value.
“The Powerball jackpot continues to climb in world record status at $1.9 billion, and excitement throughout the country is at a fever pitch,” West Virginia Lottery Assistant Director Randy Burnside said. “I want to encourage all of our West Virginia players to have fun and play responsibly. It only takes one ticket to win.”
