Powerball $480M jackpot winning numbers for Monday, Oct. 17, 2022

Powerball’s winless streak continues, sending Wednesday’s jackpot above the $500 million mark.

WASHINGTON — Powerball’s next jackpot has crossed an estimated half a billion dollars after remaining winless for weeks. 

The winning Powerball numbers for Monday were 19-30-36-46-60 with the Powerball 25 and Power Play 3.  

There were no winners of Monday’s jackpot prize of $480 million, but there were million-dollar winners in Iowa and Wisconsin, and another player in Kentucky wins $2 million by matching all five numbers and the Power Play.

Players must match all five numbers and the Powerball to win the grand prize. The odds of that happening are slim with less than 1 in 292 million.

Despite the narrow odds of winning the grand prize, the shot at becoming a millionaire isn’t out of the question. After Saturday’s drawing, a couple people woke up as millionaires after two tickets matched the five numbers. The winning million-dollar tickets were bought in Texas and Ohio.

Players will get another chance at the ever-growing prize on Wednesday, Oct. 19.

On Friday, two players won the $494 million Mega Millions, after matching all five numbers and the Mega ball. It was the second largest Mega Millions prize this year. 

However, it was this summer’s near-record $1.377 billion Mega Millions jackpot that sent Americans in a lottery frenzy in July until a winner in Illinois took home the grand prize. Two people came forward last month to claim that prize, but they chose to stay anonymous.

Powerball still holds the world record for largest jackpot with a whopping $1.586 billion prize won in 2016. That prize was shared by winners in Tennessee, Florida and California.

Powerball’s current $480 million jackpot would need to remain winless for a while before it reached any record status.

  • $1.586 billion, Powerball, Jan. 13, 2016 (three tickets, from California, Florida, Tennessee)
