No one hit Saturday’s $935 Billion jackpot. The Powerball jackpot for Monday’s lottery drawing has climbed to an estimated $1.00 Billion, with a cash option valued at $483.8 million.

The winning numbers were: 12, 13, 33, 50 and 52. The Powerball drawn was 23 with a Power Play of 3X.

Despite no jackpot winner from the drawing on Saturday, 4 lucky players won $1 million by matching five white balls except for the Powerball. The players did not select the Powerplay option. Doing so would have doubled their win to $2 million.

Besides, 55 players received $50,000, and 11 tickets won $150,000 prizes (Power Player 3X).

More than 2,340,100 tickets won cash prizes totaling $17.48 million in Saturday’s drawing.

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, Mar 30, 2024:

The jackpot currently ranks as the 5th largest Powerball jackpot and the 11th largest U.S. lottery jackpot.

If you choose the lump sum payout, the estimated pretax cash value is $483.8 million, whereas 30 years of annual payments are worth an estimated $1.00 Billion before taxes.

If you win the jackpot, experts suggest working with a tax professional, financial advisor and estate planning attorney immediately.

The record Powerball jackpot win is $2.04 billion, set in November 2022.

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:

Jackpot: Five matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 292,201,338
$1 million prize: Five matching numbers: 1 in 11,688,053.52
$50,000 prize: Four matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 913,129.18
$100 prize: Four matching numbers: 1 in 36,525.17
$100 prize: Three matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 14,494.11
$7 prize: Three matching numbers: 1 in 579.76
$7 prize: Two matching numbers with the Powerball: 1 in 701.33
$4 prize: One matching number with the Powerball: 1 in 91.98
$4 prize: Powerball only: 1 in 38.32
