The lucky numbers for the Saturday night drawing were 3, 31, 37, 40, 64 with Powerball 17. The Power Play option was 3X.

There was no grand prize winner on Saturday, nor were there any tickets sold that matched the first five white balls, and minus the red Powerball, for the game’s second prize of \$1 million.

In addition, the Powerball lottery awarded 8 third prizes worth \$50,000; 3 third prizes belonged to the owners who marked Power Play 3X, which helped to multiply three times the prize value to \$150,000; and a third prize worth \$71,738 (California).

The total prize money for the awards reaches over \$3.03 million.

These are the prize payouts for all states that play Powerball combined, along with the prize values for each prize tier, with and without the “Power Play” on Sat, Jul 27, 2024:

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington D.C, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win at least \$1 million.

To play Powerball, you pick six numbers: five numbers between one and 69 for the white balls; and one number between one and 26 for the red Powerball. Selecting all of them correctly gets you the jackpot. You can also pay for the Power Play option, which multiples any winnings earned by two, three, four, five or 10 times the amount, depending on which number is drawn.

How can you increase your odds? You can buy more than one ticket, though you’d have to have purchase 292,201,338 to account for all of the numerical possibilities, which would cost more than winning the jackpot. You have much better odds of winning a small prize:
