Nobody matched all five white balls and the red Powerball in last night’s historic $1.6 billion Powerball drawing. The winning numbers were 28 45 53 56 69 and Powerball 20. The last time anyone matched all six numbers was back in August. The Powerball Jackpot starts at $40 million and increases by at least $10 million each time there is no winner. According to lottery officials, the jackpot for this Monday’s drawing is now up to an estimated $1.9 billion with a cash option of $929.1 million.
Last week we reported on several recent second and third-tier local Powerball winners, including $1 million dollar tickets that were sold in Calvert County and Baltimore City, as well as $100,000 and $50,000 tickets sold in Gaithersburg and a $50,000 ticket sold in Silver Spring. We will post an update if there are any local winners announced from Saturday night’s drawing. The of winning Powerball are 1 in 292.2 million.
