No one matched all six numbers to win Saturday night’s Powerball jackpot, but two Michigan Lottery players won $1 million.

Two tickets matched the five white balls drawn Saturday night — 19-31-40-46-57 — to win a $1 million. Those tickets were purchased at:

  • New Buffalo Shell, 18913 Laporte Road, New Buffalo
  • Billy’s Liquor Depot II, 27222 Grand River Avenue, Redford

With no jackpot winner in Saturday’s drawing, the Powerball jackpot now stands at $1 billion with a cash option of $497 million. The next Powerball drawing is Monday.

If a player wins the $1 billion jackpot, it will be the second-largest Powerball jackpot ever won, and fifth-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history. Monday’s drawing will be the 38th Powerball drawing since the jackpot was last won Aug. 3.

The last Michigan player to win a Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis, of Waterford. She won the game’s $70 million jackpot on Feb. 12, 2020.

If a Michigan player wins the jackpot, it would be the second largest jackpot ever won in the state. In January 2021, an Oakland County lottery club won a $1.05 billion Mega Millions jackpot. That jackpot was the largest ever won in Michigan and the fourth largest in U.S. lottery history.

Powerball tickets may be purchased until 9:45 p.m. Monday. Tickets also may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com.
