NEW YORK (WABC) — The Powerball jackpot reached an estimated $1 billion ($497.3 million cash) for the next drawing on Halloween, after no one matched all six numbers on Saturday night.
Saturday’s winning numbers were: 40-19-57-31-46 Powerball: 23
According to lottery officials, this is the second time in Powerball history that the advertised jackpot has reached $1 billion.
If a player wins Monday’s jackpot, it will be the second largest jackpot in Powerball history.
You can watch the Powerball drawing at 11 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, at abc7ny.com/lottery, and on our 24/7 streaming channel.
Although no one took home the grand prize, you should still check your tickets. Six tickets won a $1 million prize after matching all five white balls drawn.
One ticket sold in Florida matched all five white balls and increased the prize to $2 million by including the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play.
In our area, four third prize winning tickets worth $50,000 were purchased in New York.
The prize-winning tickets were purchased at Kai Smart Family Store on 32nd Avenue in Flushing, TM Gas & Food Corp, on Union Turnpike in Flushing, 249th Street Food Mart on Union Turnpike in Bellrose and 7-Eleven on Pine Aire Drive in Bay Shore.
The winning tickets had four matching numbers and the Powerball.
The Powerball jackpot was last hit on August 3, when a ticket in Pennsylvania matched all five white balls and the red Powerball to win a $206.9 million jackpot.
Since then, there have been 37 drawings in a row with no grand prize winner.
The Monday night drawing will be the 38th draw in the jackpot run.
The biggest lottery jackpot ever was a $1.586 billion Powerball prize that three ticket holders won in 2016.
Powerball is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Mega Millions is also streamed at abc7ny.com/lottery on Tuesday and Thursday at 11:00 p.m.
