Powerball players might just have a shot at winning $747 million, the fifth-largest jackpot in the game’s history.
The Powerball jackpot rolled after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn
on Saturday night, according to a news release from the game.
If someone wins in Monday’s drawing, they’ll take home the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot and the ninth-largest US lottery jackpot.
According to Powerball, Saturday’s top-winning tickets included four tickets that matched all five white balls. Each of those players will win $1 million.
More than 2 million tickets won cash prizes amounting to $20 million during Saturday’s drawing, Powerball said. The four $1 million-winning tickets were sold in Florida, New Jersey, Oregon, and Pennsylvania.
The Powerball jackpot was last hit in November in Kansas, according to the news release. A single ticket won a whopping $92.9 million.
The largest Powerball jackpot of all time was won earlier in November, when a lucky player won $2.04 billion in California.
