DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The winning numbers have been drawn for the $448 million Powerball jackpot.
The numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.
At the time of the telecast, Powerball officials announced that the jackpot previously pegged at $425 million had grown to an estimated $448 million.
The allure of capturing such a rich jackpot has had players in a ticket-buying frenzy, further confirming Powerball players often don't get into the game until the jackpot offers big bucks.
A recent game change increased the frequency of huge jackpots, and Wednesday's third largest-ever jackpot comes only months after the biggest Powerball jackpot in history - a $590 million pot won in Florida.
