Saturday’s Powerball numbers were 28, 38, 42, 47 and 52. The Powerball was 1 and the Power Play was 2X.
But again, there was no winner of the $635 million jackpot, which ranks sixth in Powerball history. In the next draw on Monday, October 4, the top prize will be even higher.
Although no one claimed the jackpot in Saturday’s draw, a Massachusetts player correctly matched five white balls to win $1 million.
An additional 66 players matched four white balls and the Powerball to win prizes of $50,000, while an additional 11 players doubled their winnings to $100,000 with the Power Play.
The Powerball jackpot has been steadily rising for four months since a player last won the top prize. It has been rolled 39 times since then a Florida player won a $268 million jackpot in June.
Before that, the jackpot had not been claimed since March 27 when another player from Florida raised $238 million price.
