Powerball Jackpot Results for Monday 17th October 2022

Powerball’s winning streak continues, sending Wednesday’s jackpot past the $500 million mark.

WASHINGTON — Powerball’s next jackpot has exceeded one estimated half a billion dollars after being winless for weeks.

The Powerball winning numbers for Monday night’s draw were 19-30-36-46-60 with Powerball 25 and Power Play 3.

There were no winners of Monday’s $480 million jackpot prize, but there were million dollar winners in Iowa and Wisconsin, and another player in Kentucky won $2 million by hitting all five numbers and the power play typed correctly.

Players must match all five numbers and those power ball to win the grand prize. The chances of this happening are slim, less than 1 in 292 million. There have now been 32 consecutive draws without a grand prize winner.

Players will get another shot at the ever-growing prize on Wednesday October 19th. The jackpot is currently $508 million, with a $256.3 million cash option.

Despite the low probability of winning the main prize, the chance of becoming a millionaire is not excluded. After Saturday’s drawing, a few people woke up as millionaires after two tickets matched the five numbers. The $1 million winning tickets were bought in Texas and Ohio.

On Friday, two players won the $494 million Mega Millions jackpot after matching all five numbers and the Mega Ball. It was the second largest Mega Millions prize this year.

This summer’s near-record-breaking $1.377 billion Mega Millions jackpot sent Americans into a lottery frenzy in July until a winner in Illinois took home the grand prize. Last month, two people came forward to claim this prize, but they have chosen to remain anonymous.

Powerball still holds the world record for the largest jackpot with a whopping $1.586 billion prize won in 2016. This award was shared by winners in Tennessee, Florida and California.

Powerball’s current jackpot of $508 million would have to go winless for a while before reaching record status, despite approaching the 10th largest Powerball prize of $564.1 million.

Here’s a look at the biggest US jackpots of all time, according to the Associated Press:

  • $1.586 billion, Powerball, January 13, 2016 (three tickets, from California, Florida, Tennessee)
