Powerball Jackpot Reaches $1 billion For the Next Drawing, As No One Wins Again in Saturday's Drawing

(CTN News) – Powerball keeps getting bigger because people keep losing. No one matched all six numbers and won the estimated $825 million jackpot on Saturday night. According to Powerball.

Powerball Monday night’s drawing will cost $1 billion on Halloween, which will be the second-largest jackpot in U.S. history. One of the biggest prizes was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won by three ticket holders in 2016.

Despite the advertised $1 billion top prize, that’s for winners who get their winnings over 29 years through an annuity. It’s almost always cash for winners, an estimated $497.3 million for Monday’s drawing.

Powerball said the jackpot went up from $800 million to $825 million because of strong ticket sales.

If you didn’t win the latest grand prize, don’t throw your receipts away.

In Saturday’s drawing, a Florida ticket holder matched all five white balls and won $2 million thanks to the “Power Play” feature. A $1 million prize was won by six tickets, including two in California, two in Michigan, one in Maryland, and one in Texas.

17 tickets won $150,000, and 80 tickets won $50,000. Powerball said more than 3.8 million tickets won cash prizes totalling $38 million.

Powerball is played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 p.m., Mega Millions is also streamed at abc7ny.com/lottery.
