Saturday’s Powerball numbers were 30, 31, 41, 42 and 48. The Powerball was 3 and the Power Play was 3X.
But there was no winner of the $60 million jackpot on October 16, meaning it will rise to $65 million (with a cash value of $46 million) for the next drawing.
Although no-one claimed the top prizes in Saturday’s drawing, 12 players matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 prizes. Two players tripled their winnings to $150,000 with the Power Play.
Some 212 players matched four white balls correctly to win $100 each, while 83 others tripled their cash prize to $300 thanks to the Power Play.
It comes after a player from California won a jackpot worth almost $700 million, the fifth largest in Powerball history, earlier this month. The winner had the choice between an estimated annuity of $699.8 million, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or a lump sum payment of $496 million.
The winning ticket for that drawing, on October 4, was purchased at Albertsons in Morro Bay. The retailer will win a maximum bonus of $1 million for selling the winning ticket. The win was the 41st drawing in the jackpot run, rolling over steadily for four months since a player from Florida scooped a $268 million jackpot in June.
Before that, the jackpot had not been claimed since March 27 when another player from Florida scooped a $238 million prize.
