$1 billion will be raffled off on Monday

DES MOINES, Iowa — The Powerball jackpot keeps growing because players keep losing.

It happened again on Saturday night as no one matched all six numbers to win the $825 million top prize. That means Monday night’s next drawing will be a whopping $1 billion, Powerball said in a statement.

Saturday night’s winning numbers were: white balls 19, 31, 40, 46, 57 and red ball 23.

The increased jackpot would be the fifth largest in US history after another Powerball prize and three Mega Millions jackpots. The biggest prize was the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won by three ticket holders in 2016.

Although the advertised top prize will be around $1 billion, that is for winners who receive their winnings through an annuity paid out over 29 years. The winners almost always pick the money, which for Monday’s drawing will be approximately $497.3 million.

Players who missed out on the last top prize in the 30-year-old lottery should not immediately throw away their receipts.

The ticket holder from Florida matched all five white balls in Saturday’s drawing and increased the prize to $2 million by activating the game’s “Power Play” feature. Six tickets won the $1 million prize, matching five white balls, including two in California, two in Michigan, one in Maryland and one in Texas.

Another 17 tickets won $150,000, while there were 80 winners of $50,000 each. More than 3.8 million tickets won cash prizes totaling more than $38 million, according to Powerball.

It’s been nearly three months since someone picked all six numbers and won the lottery’s top prize, with a $206.9 million jackpot won in Pennsylvania on Aug. 3. Thanks to Powerball’s huge odds of one to 292.2 million, there have been 37 consecutive draws. no jackpot winner.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as in Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
