The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $373 million with a cash option of $253.7 million, making it potentially the 31st largest prize in U.S. lottery history.
The winning numbers were: 2, 9, 17, 36 and 67. The Powerball drawn was 18 with a Megaplier of 2X.
The jackpot was most recently hit on Nov. 2 when a $150 million ticket was sold in California. It was the seventh and final jackpot-winning Powerball ticket sold across the country last year and had a cash option of $104.8 million. Since then, 23 drawings have been held without a top-prize winner, including Wednesday when no one across the country hit a $343 million jackpot.
A pair of second-prize $1 million tickets were bought for Wednesday’s drawing – one apiece in Michigan and South Carolina. Each ticket matched five numbers but not the Powerball.
