LOS ANGELES – There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery and the estimated jackpot for Monday’s drawing is expected to grow to $613 million.
There were four tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced. The one sold in Texas is worth $2 million because the player utilized the Power Play option, where for an additional $1 per play, a ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, is worth $2 million.
One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Missouri, New York and Pennsylvania. They are each worth $1 million.
The numbers drawn Monday were 2, 18, 23, 27, 47 and the Powerball number was 15. The jackpot was $576.5 million.
The drawing was the 29th since a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Powerball number is 1 in about 293 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.
The Powerball game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
