Feeling lucky? Powerball lottery soars to $337 million

Lottery site estimates the federal tax withholding on the $191 million Mega Millions lump sum would be $47.75 million, and state taxes could knock out up to another $16.85 million (with NY the worst offender). While these aren't record numbers for either jackpot, some convenience store owners say they are high enough numbers to convince many customers to buy tickets. Nobody hit the jackpot in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing. The prize for the Powerball drawing sits at $337 million.

Powerball tickets are $2 per play.

There were 322,157 tickets sold that won at least $4 in the drawing. The winning numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing were 44-15-1-13-3 and Powerball 25. The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292,201,338, the lottery said.
