Powerball Jackpot Numbers Announced

May 19, 2013 1:33 AM

The winning Powerball numbers drawn late Saturday were 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 with Powerball number 11.

Powerball's website said one winner was sold in Florida, and David Bishop of the Florida Lottery confirmed that it was sold at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills.

The jackpot of the 43-state lottery game surged ahead of the drawing and had been estimated at $600 million -- the second-largest pot in U.S. lottery history. Powerball officials later revised that to more than $590 million.

The chances of winning the big prize were low -- 1 in 175.2 million -- but it didn't stop hopeful Americans across the country from purchasing about 80 percent of all possible combinations, according to lottery officials.

The estimated jackpot surpassed Powerball's previous record set in November 2012, when the jackpot jumped to $587.5 million before two winners split the prize.

The largest jackpot ever claimed was a $656 million Mega Millions prize split three ways in March.

In addition to the big prize at stake Saturday, tickets worth $2 million were sold in New York and South Carolina. In California, which joined the Powerball lottery in April and figures winnings by pari-mutuel, two tickets each worth $2.3 million were sold, according to the California State Lottery website.

The estimated cash value of Saturday's drawing, if it had hit $600 million and the winner chose to be paid in one lump sum, would have been roughly $377 million -- before taxes, of course.

Tiffany Satchell told NBCMiami.com that she knows exactly what she'd do if she won.

"Pay off all my bills," she said. "I really want a Range Rover."
