Powerball Results, Numbers for 10/17/20: Did Anyone Win the $82 Million?

The winning numbers in Saturday evening’s drawing of the Powerball were 6, 10, 31, 37, and 44. The Powerball was 23 and the Power Play was X2.

No one has claimed the $82 million jackpot for the October 17 draw, according to the Powerball website. As a result, the prize money will now roll over to the next drawing on Thursday, October 22. The estimated jackpot then will be $91 million (with a cash value of $72 million).

Even though no players scooped the jackpot in Saturday night’s draw, there were some big winners.

A player in Puerto Rico correctly matched five white balls to win a $2 million prize, thanks to a Power Play purchase.

Meanwhile, five other players matched four white balls and the Powerball correctly to win $50,000 prizes. Five others doubled their prize money to $100,000 with a Power Play purchase on top.

The Powerball jackpot was reset to $20 million a month ago after a player in New York scooped the $94 million jackpot in the September 16 draw. The winning ticket was sold at Minogue’s Beverage located at 2421 Route 9 in Ballston Spa, according to the Powerball website.

Before then, the jackpot hadn’t been won since August 12, when one lucky player in Florida matched all five white balls and the Powerball to scoop a massive $169 million payout.

The Powerball jackpot was also won twice in June. One winner, Thomas Cook, split his $22 million prize with his best friend Joseph Feeney. The pair from Wisconsin shook hands in 1992, agreeing that they would split their winnings if either one ever won the Powerball jackpot, no matter no bought the ticket.

Earlier in the month, a player in West Virginia scooped a $136 million jackpot.

How do you play Powerball?

Powerball is a hugely popular multi-state lottery that is available to play in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings usually take place twice a week on a Wednesday and Saturday night, at 10:59 p.m. ET. Each draw is broadcast live from the lottery studio in Tallahassee, Florida.

Each ticket costs $2 per play, with players selecting five numbers from 1 to 69, in addition to one red Powerball number from 1 to 26. In certain circumstances, players can also multiply non-jackpot prizes by using the Power Play option for an additional $1.

Why is the Powerball so low?

Powerball slashed its minimum payout in half from $40 million to $20 million with minimum roll increased of $2 million between drawings back in March because of the coronavirus pandemic leading to reduced sales, according to lottery officials.

The winning numbers in Saturday evening’s drawing of the Powerball were 6, 10, 31, 37, and 44. The Powerball was 23 and the Power Play was X2.

The winning numbers for the $435 million Powerball are 20, 26, 32, 38, 58. Powerball is 3 and PowerPlay is 2x.

If someone hits the jackpot, it’ll be the 8th largest Powerball prize and the 11th biggest in U.S. lottery history.

This evening’s drawing will be the 20th held since an anonymous winner in Arizona captured a $60 million prize on April 1.

While that person has stepped forward, whoever won a $156.2 Powerball prize in Wisconsin on March 22 has yet to claim his or her prize.

With six more drawings until the year reaches the midway point, three Powerball jackpots have been hit in 2017. Last year, seven drawings produced a jackpot winner.

One of those, the Jan. 13, 2016 drawing, turned into the largest in lottery history. The holders of three winning tickets split an approximately $1.59 billion prize.

About four months later, a Trenton woman and her seven adult children shared a $429.6 million Powerball prize. It’s the most valuable ticket ever sold in New Jersey and for the moment the 11th largest prize awarded.

New Jersey’s most recent $1 million, second-prize winner came a month ago. The lucky winner made the purchase at a gas station on Route 46 in Dover.

The odds of a $2 ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. A player also has an approximately 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers, but not the Powerball.

The twice-weekly game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
