No Powerball winner Saturday night. Monday draw is for half a billion
There was no big winner in last night's Powerball drawing letting the jackpot climb to an estimated $502 million. The winning numbers on Saturday, Sept. 9 were 11-19-29-63-68 and the Powerball was 25.
However, last night's drawing did include two tickets worth $1 million each. One was sold in New Hampshire and one was sold in Virginia. A winning ticket worth $2 million was also sold in Florida.
Officials with Powerball said dozens of winning tickets worth $1 million or more have been sold since July's $1.08 billion jackpot produced a winning ticket in California.
That jackpot was the third-largest Powerball jackpot and sixth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever won, but this year has been flush with giant jackpots. Earlier this year, there was one Mega Million jackpot worth $483 million and two others that exceeded $1 billion.
Powerball tickets are $2 per play. According to Powerball.com, players have a 1 in 292.2 million chance to match all six numbers to win the jackpot. The odds of winning a prize are 1 in 24.9. Prizes range from $2 to the grand prize.
Powerball drawings are broadcast live from Florida every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET. The next drawing will be Monday night for an estimated $522 million with a $252.4 million cash value.
