Someone wins the $189 million Powerball jackpot

A ticket sold in Florida matched all six of the numbers drawn to win the weekend Powerball jackpot worth $189 million. Saturday's winning numbers were 12-24-48-50-and-57. The Powerball was 22 and the multiplier was 3.

Colorado's top prize was $10,000 for a ticket that matched the Powerball, plus four of the other numbers.

The jackpot will be worth an estimated $20 million on Wednesday.

Powerball was created in 1992 and launched in Colorado in 2001. It's now played in 30 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
