Not bought a ticket for Saturday? Good luck! Read on to find out more about the drawing on Monday.New York lottery players now have another chance to win big because there was no grand prize winner in the last drawing. The estimated Powerball jackpot for Monday night is now $1.55 billion.
Saturday’s numbers were 47, 54, 57, 60, and 65 for white balls. It was a 19 on the red Powerball. It was 3X for the Power Play.
It is the fourth-biggest jackpot in U.S. history and the third-biggest in Powerball history. The jackpot is worth $679.8 million in cash. Most people who win the jackpot choose to get cash instead of an annuity that pays out over 20 years.
The drawing on Saturday had more than 4.5 million tickets worth between $2 and $2 million. The states of California, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts (two), Michigan, Ohio, Texas (two), and Wisconsin all sold ten tickets worth $1 million each that matched all five white balls.
One player in Iowa and the other in Maine also matched all five white balls and played the multiplier. They won $2 million each. Besides those big wins, 85 tickets won $50,000 each, and 27 tickets won $150,000 each.
The jackpot run will end on Monday with the 35th drawing. This is the first time in Powerball history that back-to-back jackpot cycles have produced a billion-dollar grand prize. The last Powerball jackpot winner was in California on July 19, when a ticket won a $1.08 billion jackpot.
Each Powerball ticket costs $2. Anyone in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands can buy a ticket. If you buy a Powerball ticket, more than half of the money you get stays in the area where you bought the ticket. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. EST, the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee streams live Powerball drawings.
There is a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning a prize. One in 292.2 million people will win the jackpot.
