The winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing of the Powerball were 51, 54, 57, 60 and 69. The Powerball was 11 and the Power Play was X2.

But no one has claimed the $202 million jackpot for the November 21 draw, according to the Powerball website. Therefore, the prize money will roll over to the next drawing on Thursday, November 26. The estimated jackpot then will be $202 million (with a cash value of $157.9 million).

Although no-one won the jackpot in Saturday’s draw, there were some big winners.

Ten players matched four white balls and the Powerball correctly to win $50,000 prizes. Another four doubled their prize money to $100,000 with a Power Play purchase.

The Powerball jackpot hasn’t been won since September. The winning ticket, worth $94 million, in the September 16 draw was sold at Minogue’s Beverage located at 2421 Route 9 in Ballston Spa, according to the Powerball website. The win reset the Powerball jackpot to $20 million.

Before that, the jackpot was won on 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 ever won the Powerball jackpot, no matter who bought the ticket.

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.

Powerball Product Group Chairman and Maine Lottery Director Gregory Mineo said in a statement at the time: “Powerball players in many U.S. lottery jurisdictions are under shelter-in-place orders or recommendations, which have affected normal consumer behaviors.

The last winning Powerball ticket was sold on August 12, 2020 for a jackpot worth $169 million. That ticket was sold in Florida.

Normally, the game would reset to a $40 million minimum, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced Powerball officials to cut the minimum jackpot in half, which began with the 04/11/20 jackpot.

The previous winning ticket was sold on June 10, 2020. The previous winning ticket sold was purchased in New Jersey for the 04/08/20 jackpot worth $190 million. The previous grand prize won before that was $70 million in the 02/12/20 drawing with a ticket purchased in Michigan. The grand prize winner before that was on 01/29/20. That ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Bonita Springs, Florida, for the $394 million grand prize, which had a cash option of $274.6 million.

The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the jackpot size—according to Powerball’s website.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery played every Wednesday and Saturday, and one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Powerball jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million with a Power Play. Tickets are $2. You can check the numbers for tonight, or any past winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot is reset at $20 million after a jackpot is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings with a Megaplier. Here is the Mega Millions website for more information, or to check any potential past numbers.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.

Saturday night we will post the Powerball 11/21/20 drawing payouts and tell if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if so.
