Monday’s Powerball drawing did not produce a grand prize winner, causing the jackpot to continue to grow. The winning numbers, 24, 33, 35, 37, 42, and the red Powerball, 21, were not matched by any lucky ticket holder.
The last time the Powerball jackpot was won was back in October, when a California player won a staggering $1.76 billion. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, making the California winner’s success truly remarkable. The jackpot has been steadily growing since then and is expected to reach $255 million for the upcoming drawing on November 15, 2023.
While the $255 million jackpot represents annual installment payments, a lump sum cash option of $117.1 million is also available. This hefty sum has the potential to be life-changing for the lucky winner.
In the latest drawing, a single ticket holder correctly matched all five white balls, winning a $1 million prize. Additionally, seven players correctly guessed four white balls and the red Powerball, winning a $50,000 prize each. Five players who utilized the Power Play option won $100,000 each.
In other lottery news, a lucky man from Albuquerque recently won a $3.52 million jackpot from the Lotto America drawing on November 4, 2023. The winner opted to choose his own numbers rather than using randomly generated ones for his Lotto America, Powerball, and Mega Millions tickets.
