Winning numbers drawn in Powerball jackpot

DES MOINES, Iowa — Lottery officials say the winning numbers in a near-historic Powerball jackpot have been drawn.

They are: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and Powerball 11.

Officials say the latest Powerball jackpot figure results are still pending. They had estimated it at $600 million.

With four of every five possible combinations of Powerball numbers in play, someone is almost sure to win the game's highest jackpot. The problem, of course, is those same odds just about guarantee the lucky person won't be you.

The chances of winning the prize remain astronomically low: 1 in 175.2 million. That's how many different ways you can combine the numbers when you play.

But since about 80 percent of the possible combinations have been purchased, lottery officials say it's likely the winning ticket could be selected.
