Des Moines, Iowa—The biggest lottery prize in months went big when no ticket matched all five numbers and the Powerball was drawn on Saturday night.
The estimated jackpot for the next drawing on Monday is $670 million.
Saturday night’s numbers were 28, 38, 42, 47 and 52. Powerball was 1.
The Powerball jackpot has slowly climbed, thanks to 40 consecutive drawings without any grand prize winners, a record streak for games since June 5. There hasn’t been a bigger Powerball jackpot since winning the $731.1 million prize on January 20th. Saturday’s $635 million grand prize would have been the 10th largest US lottery jackpot ever won.
Since August 23, Powerball drawings have been held three times a week to increase interest and increase rewards more quickly. Images are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. EDT.
However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the long odds of winning the jackpot—one in 292.2 million.
Estimated jackpot amount refers to winners who choose to pay through annuity over 29 years. Most winners prefer the cash option, which will cost an estimated $474.8 million before taxes for Monday’s drawing.
Powerball is played in 45 states as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
