Powerball Results, Numbers For 10/28/20: Has Anyone Won The Jackpot Of $ 116 Million?

The latest Wednesday Powerball draw took place last night—but did anyone take home the $116 million jackpot?

The winning numbers on October 28, 2020, were 11, 28, 37, 40 and 53, while the Powerball was 13 and the Power Play was 2x.

There were no grand prize winners or winners for Match 5 with Power Play, according to the lottery’s official website.

However, two players—one in Florida and another in Missouri—matched the five white balls without the Power Play option, each winning a prize of $1 million.

Thirteen winners matched four white balls and the Powerball, which earned them each $50,000. Three of those 13 winners purchased the Power Play option, which won them each $100,000.

There were 244 players who matched four white balls and 64 of these winners purchased the Power Play option, which earned them each $200.

A total of 678 players matched three white balls and the Powerball, each also winning $100, while 211 of these winners opted for Power Play, which earned them each $200.

The next Powerball drawing will be on Sunday, November 1, with an estimated jackpot prize of $127 million and cash value of $98 million.

How to play Powerball

Powerball tickets cost $2 per play and are sold in 45 states as well as in Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Players each select five numbers from one to 69 for the five white balls and a number from one to 26 for the Powerball.

Players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by two, three, four, five or 10 times by purchasing the Power Play option for an additional $1 per play.

Drawings take place every Wednesday and Saturday from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee.

The prizes

The Powerball jackpot prize value continues to grow until it is won. “The Match 5 + Power Play prize value is always $2 million, while the 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot is $150 million or less,” according to the website.

Jackpot winners can receive their prize as either an annuity or a lump-sum payment. For those who choose the annuity option, the winner is guaranteed to receive 30 graduated payments over 29 years. The annual payments increase by five percent until the 30th and final payment, the website notes.

What are the odds of winning?

The overall odds of winning a prize are one in 24.9, while the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million, according to the Powerball website.

The odds of winning a prize are the same in every Powerball drawing. “Even if there are more tickets sold in a particular drawing, your odds of winning a prize are the same,” the Powerball website states.
