The Mega Millions drawing took place Saturday night, offering players a $625 million jackpot — the 7th highest U.S. lottery jackpot ever.

The winning numbers are: 66, 52, 60, 24, 25, and the Powerball is 5.

The estimated lump sum payout would be $380.6 million before taxes. The odds of winning are roughly 1 in 292.2 million.

No Powerball ticket matched all six winning numbers in the $562 million drawing Wednesday night, and the jackpot rose tens of millions of dollars more.

The winning numbers were 10, 14, 50, 53, 63. The Powerball was 21. Four tickets matched all five of the numbers besides the Powerball. They are worth $1 million and were sold in New Jersey, Florida, South Carolina and Kentucky.

The Powerball jackpot has been growing since it was hit on Dec. 26 in New York at just under $300 million.

Powerball is played in 44 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, all of which collectively oversee the game. Drawings are held twice a week. Five white balls are drawn from a drum containing 69 balls and one red ball is selected from a drum with 26 balls. Players can choose their numbers or let a computer make a random choice.
