Powerball’s latest drawing yielded multiple millionaires but no jackpot winners. The lottery game’s jackpot has since risen to over $800 million.

Powerball announced the results of its September 25 drawing, which had nearly 1.3 million winners and paid out more than $13 million in prizes.

Winning numbers for Monday night’s drawing were 10, 12, 22, 36, and 50, with a Powerball of 4 and a power play of 2.

The jackpot at the time of the drawing was an estimated $793,600,000, with a cash value of $371 million. While multiple citizens across the nation became millionaires, there was no winner for the jackpot prize.

Three Florida and one Oregon resident each claimed $1 million by matching five numbers. In addition, 32 players won $50,000 each, while six others won $100,000.

The jackpot has continued to grow after the last jackpot winner took home $1.08 billion in the July 19 drawing. Since then, there have been 29 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner, according to a Powerball news release.

The Dallas Express previously reported that the prize had risen to an annuitized $725 million following a drawing on September 20. Since then, the jackpot has grown by more than $100 million.

“If a player wins the jackpot on Wednesday night, they will have the choice between an annuitized prize worth an estimated $835 million or a lump sum payment estimated at $390.4 million,” read a news release from Powerball. “Both prize options are before taxes. If the winner selects the annuity option, they will receive one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year.”

The September 27 jackpot is the second-largest jackpot for 2023 and the fourth-largest jackpot in the game’s history, according to Powerball.

The Powerball drawings, held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, are broadcast live at 9:59 p.m. CT and are also live-streamed at Powerball.com.
