$625 million dollar Powerball numbers to be picked Saturday night

Mega Millions lottery drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays

With no winning grand prize ticket, the pot for the multistate lottery is now at $750 million, swollen with the hopes and dreams of millions who purchase tickets for the biweekly drawings.

Taking the cash up front in the next drawing would get you about $465 million (before taxes), while an annuity would get you the full amount (also, before taxes) in installments across 30 years. That marked the fourth largest in the game's history.

The winning numbers for tonight were 24 - 25 -52 - 60 -66 and a red Powerball of 5.

Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers - five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 - or select Easy Pick.

Now, it will continue to grow.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit in NY in the December 26 drawing.
