Source - The Powerball jackpot has officially set another new world record. The jackpot is now estimated at $1.9 billion, with a cash option of $929.1 million, according to Powerball, ahead of the next drawing Monday.
That means should someone win Monday's jackpot – it takes place at 10:59 p.m. ET – it would go down as the largest in Powerball in history, beating the previous record set in 2016, when the jackpot was won at $1.586 billion by three ticket holders.
The Powerball jackpot had climbed to $1.6 billion, but none of the tickets sold matched all six of the winning numbers drawn Saturday night: 28 45 53 56 69, and the Powerball was 20. The Power Play was 3.
No one won Saturday's Powerball drawing: Now the jackpot grows to a record $1.9 billion.
Just a friendly reminder for everyone to grab their tickets before tonight's drawing, because despite what Klemmer says, it would actually be pretty nice to win. You can read his absolutely backwards blog arguing the opposite below...
Oh I need a financial advisor? Thanks, Chris! I'd also rather lose a hundred million dollars than never have it at all, right? At least that way you've got a cool story.
Regardless, the morons he listed in his blog are just that - morons. Uneducated white trash neanderthals destined for doom. Which is exactly the kind of person who is going to win tonight. Some fast-food-eating, fountain-soda-drinking pig who spends their nights sunken into the couch wondering why they don't have a show on TLC. Oh well. Here are the previous big jackpots and where they won...

I wish I knew who the winners were so I could follow up, but half the states allow you to collect anonymously which is the dream. Just disappear off the face of the earth without a care in the world. So what would you guys do if you won? Sound off in the comments below. Best one gets absolutely nothing. Thanks for reading!
