(NEXSTAR) — Without a winner in Saturday’s drawing, the Powerball jackpot has propelled to an estimated $638 million ahead of the next draw.
No ticket was able to match all numbers drawn on Saturday, September 16: 8, 11, 19, 24, 46, and red Powerball 5. The Power Play was 2X.
While there were no jackpot-winning tickets, there were 1.2 million tickets that won a prize in the drawing, according to Powerball. Two tickets sold in Arizona and Washington matched all five white balls, producing $1 million winnings each.
This marks the 25th consecutive Powerball drawing without a jackpot winner, pushing the estimated jackpot for Monday’s drawing to $638 million. This makes the jackpot the third-largest this year, and the 10th largest jackpot in Powerball history.
At its current estimated size, it has edged out a $632.6 million jackpot split by tickets in California and Wisconsin in 2022.
Here are the 10 largest Powerball jackpots on record:
- $2.04 billion: Nov. 7, 2022 (California)
- $1.586 billion: Jan. 13, 2016 (California, Florida, Tennessee)
- $1.08 billion: July 19, 2023 (California)

- $687.8 million: Oct. 27, 2018 (Iowa, New York)
- $638 million (est. Sept. 18, 2023)
Should there be a jackpot winner in Monday’s drawing, they’ll have to choose between an annuitized payout of $638 million in yearly payments over 29 years, or a lump sum, which currently sits at an estimated $304.2 million.
