The Powerball jackpot now stands at a record $1.9 billion when it was thrown Saturday night, after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn – white balls 28, 45, 53, 56, 69 and red Powerball 20. The Power Play multiplier was 3X.

The record jackpot has narrowly surpassed the previous record, a $1.586 billion prize won by three ticket holders in 2016.

The odds of any given ticket winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, and it’s those long odds that led to three months without anyone matching all six balls.

“Like the rest of America and the world, I think we’d all like to know when this historic jackpot will finally be won,” said Drew Svitko, Powerball Product Group Chair and Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director.

Despite there being no jackpot-winning ticket, more than 10.9 million tickets won cash prizes totaling $102.2 million in Saturday’s November 5 draw.

Big winners include 16 tickets that matched all five white balls to win a $1 million prize. One ticket in Kentucky won a $2 million prize by matching all five white balls and including the Power Play option for an additional $1 per game.

There were also 219 tickets across the country that won a prize of $50,000, and another 51 tickets that won a prize of $150,000.

Monday’s draw will be the 41st Powerball draw since the jackpot was last won on August 3 in Pennsylvania. The jackpot run has broken the game record for the number of consecutive draws without a top prize winner.

The only other Powerball jackpot to reach 41 consecutive draws ended on October 4, 2021 with a $699.8 million winner in California.

Jackpot winners can choose to receive their prize as an annuity, paid out in 30 tiered payments over 29 years, or as a lump sum. Both advertised pricing options are ahead of federal and court taxes.

Powerball tickets are $2 per game. Tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

Powerball draws are broadcast live every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 10:59 PM ET from the Florida Lottery drawing studio in Tallahassee.
