Powerball jackpot grows to $800 million as no grand prize winners emerge on Saturday

The next Powerball drawing on Monday night has an estimated grand prize of $800 million, as no tickets matched all six numbers for the $750 million jackpot in the previous drawing. The winning numbers drawn on Saturday were 6, 23, 25, 34, 51, and Powerball 3. While there was no jackpot winner, five tickets won $1 million each in different states. The potential winner of Monday’s drawing can choose to receive the prize in annuitized payments or a lump sum of approximately $384.8 million.

The last time the Powerball jackpot was won was in January, with a prize worth $842.4 million. Since then, there have been 35 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner, leading to the current record-breaking jackpot. In addition to the Powerball jackpot, the Mega Millions jackpot has also been growing, with an estimated $1.1 billion grand prize for the upcoming drawing on Tuesday. To win the Powerball jackpot, a ticket must correctly guess all five white balls plus the red Powerball, with odds of 1 in 292.2 million.

Powerball tickets cost $2 per play and are available in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Drawings are held three times a week in Tallahassee, Florida. The excitement and anticipation of potentially winning such a large jackpot have been building as the prizes continue to grow. Many players across the country are hoping to be the lucky winner who takes home the massive grand prize and forever changes their life. The overwhelming odds of winning the jackpot only add to the excitement and allure of playing the lottery.
