Powerball winning numbers: jackpot reaches around $1 billion, the 2nd largest in history

NEW YORK (WABC) — The Powerball jackpot has reached around $1 billion ($497.3 million in cash) for the upcoming Halloween draw, after no one matched all six numbers on Saturday night.

Saturday’s winning numbers were: 40-19-57-31-46 Powerball: 23

According to lottery officials, this is the second time in Powerball history that the advertised jackpot has reached $1 billion.

If a player wins Monday’s jackpot, it will be the second biggest jackpot in Powerball history.

You can watch the Powerball draw at 11 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at abc7ny.com/lottery and on our 24/7 streaming channel.

Although no one won the grand prize, you should still check your tickets. Six tickets won a $1 million prize after matching all five white balls drawn.

A ticket sold in Florida matched the five white balls and increased the price to $2 million by including the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play.

In our region, four third prize winning tickets worth $50,000 were purchased in New York.

Prize-winning tickets were purchased at the Kai Smart Family Store on 32nd Avenue in Flushing, TM Gas & Food Corp, on Union Turnpike in Flushing, 249th Street Food Mart on Union Turnpike in Bellrose, and 7-Eleven on Pine Aire Drive in Bay Shore.

The winning tickets had four identical numbers and the Powerball.

The Powerball jackpot was last hit on August 3, when a ticket in Pennsylvania matched the five white balls and the red Powerball to win a $206.9 million jackpot.

Since then, there have been 37 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner.

The Monday evening draw will be the 38th jackpot draw.

The biggest lottery jackpot of all time was a $1.586 billion Powerball prize won by three ticket holders in 2016.

Powerball is played in 45 states as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Mega Millions also airs on abc7ny.com/lottery on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:00 p.m.
