The top Powerball prize has grown to $1 billion, excluding the jackpot winner

The Powerball jackpot keeps growing because players keep losing.

It happened again on Saturday night as no one answered all six numbers and won the grand prize, which is estimated at $825 million. That means Monday night’s next drawing will be a whopping $1 billion, according to a statement from Powerball.

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

The increased jackpot would be the second largest in US history. The biggest win was the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot three ticket holders won 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.

The $825 million jackpot in Saturday’s drawing was up from $800 million on Friday as a result of strong ticket sales, Powerball said.

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 with 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.
