Here Are the Winning Numbers for Saturday’s $1.6 Billion Powerball Drawing

The Powerball jackpot reached a record estimated high of $1.6 billion for Saturday’s drawing, making it the largest lottery prize in history. Or, at least, the highest ever jackpot at the time.

The California Lottery announced there was no jackpot winner for Saturday’s drawing, making the jackpot for Monday’s drawing at an estimated $1.9 billion. The cash value will be an estimated $929,100,000.

The winning numbers: 28-45-53-56-69 Powerball: 20 Power Play: 3x

Saturday’s jackpot topped the previous record prize of $1.586 billion won in 2016 by three Powerball players in California, Florida and Tennessee. Longtime players and first-timers alike flocked to buy tickets ahead of Saturday’s drawing, according to The Associated Press.

No one has hit all six numbers since Aug. 3. That’s 39 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner. The winless streak is due to the abysmal odds of winning: one in 292.2 million.

The longer the game goes without a grand prize winner, the larger the payout will grow.

The Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. It costs $2 to play.

Think you have a chance at winning the Lottery? Well, you do! But its a very, very small chance. Here are some things that are more likely to happen to you.
