No one won Saturday's Powerball Jackpot and now that windfall will be rolled into another drawing. The next one will not only be the largest in U.S. history, but a figure where real dreams are made of. 1.3 BILLION

Before this time around, the largest lottery winnings stood at $656 million. That amount was won by three tickets through the Mega Millions jackpot in March 2012. The largest Powerball windfall until Saturday’s was $590.5 million, which a very rich lady in Florida won in May 2013.
