Powerball winning numbers drawing yields no winner; lottery jackpot at $1.2B

There were no big treats from the Halloween night Powerball drawing, as none of the tickets sold matched all six numbers.

The lack of a winner means the next drawing Wednesday night will be for a massive $1.2 billion jackpot. That comes with a cash value of $596.7 million.

The Powerball numbers drawn Monday night for the estimated $1 billion prize are 13, 19, 36, 39, 59 and the Power Ball was 13. The Power Play was 3X.

If a player does win Wednesday’s jackpot, it will be the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history.

There were 13 tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number. Two of each were sold in California, Florida, New York, Ohio and Texas and one each in Indiana, Michigan, Oklahoma.

The largest prize in Powerball history was $1.586 billion sold in January 2016 and shared by three winners in California, Florida and Tennessee.
