Six lucky numbers came up Saturday night, were they yours?
Saturday night's winning numbers are 21, 24, 36, 42, 45 and the Powerball is 15.Lotto fever hit the valley big time Saturday morning. With the Powerball drawing set at $300 million, lottery players were hoping luck would be on their side. The jackpot holds an estimated cash value of $172.7 million.
That's enough to buy a $10 million house in paradise valley, a $9 million yacht, an $1.5 million car, plus a second yacht and a helicopter and have enough left over to invest or even give away. Whatever the plan, both lottery officials and mathematicians said every Powerball ticket has the same chance of winning.Jason Shaw, who works at the Chevron on McDowell and 44th Street, says most of his customers feel the same way. "It's mostly just quick picks, people buying the machine quick pick. Some people do have strategy, fill out their own numbers, it does get pretty crazy once the jackpot gets this high," said Shaw. Your chances of actually winning the entire jackpot is one in 175 million. Statistics show nearly 80 percent of all ticket buyers let the computer do the picking, and with good reason; more Powerball winners have relied on randomization to ensure their success.
