Powerball jackpot numbers are announced Saturday

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - As the winning numbers for the $300,000,000 powerball jackpot are announced, many are excited.

Lottery officials announced the numbers "21-24-36-42-45, Powerball: 15" Saturday evening.

This jackpot is less than the record $590.5 million that was won in May by the 84-year-old Florida widow.

Yet, it's big enough to attract casual players who only buy tickets when they think the payoff is big and potentially life-changing.
           
The odds of matching all six numbers are 1 in 175.2 million.
