The winning numbers for the second-largest Powerball jackpot of $825 Million were announced Saturday night.
The winning numbers: 19-31-40-46-57 Powerball: twenty three Power Play: 3x
There were no winners of the jackpot for Saturday’s drawing. The jackpot for Monday’s drawing will be at least $1 billion.
A massive lottery jackpot grew Friday as the top Powerball prize climbed to an estimated $825 million ahead of Saturday night’s drawing. The jackpot ranked as the second-largest in Powerball history and the fifth-largest in US history.
The $825 million prize was for winners who choose to take their riches through an annuity, paid annually over 29 years. Nearly all winners opt for cash, which was an estimated $410.2 million.
No one has hit all six numbers since Aug. 3. That’s 37 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner. The winless streak is due to the abysmal odds of winning: one in 292.2 million.
The Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. It costs $2 to play.
