There was no grand-prize winner for Saturday’s Powerball drawing for the estimated $81.4 million jackpot with a cash value of $47.3 million. There were, however, plenty of other winners for smaller prizes, as the grand-prize jackpot for Monday grows to an estimated $89 million.
The winning lottery numbers drawn on Saturday night were 3, 18, 23, 32, 57, with a red Powerball pull of 21. The PowerPlay was 2X.
The next Powerball drawing will take place on Monday. The $89 million jackpot has a $51.7 million cash option.
Two players became instant millionaires after Saturday’s drawing.
A player in North Carolina hit the Match 5, winning $1 million. The winner purchased the ticket at the Harris Teeter on South Tryon Street in Charlotte.
Meanwhile, a ticket holder in Connecticut managed to match five numbers with the 2X Power Play and won a $2 million prize.
Several smaller monetary prizes also resulted from the Saturday Powerball drawing. There were eight players who hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball and won $50,000 each. Meanwhile, only one player hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball with a 2X Power Play, winning $100,000.
