The Florida Lottery today announced that the Wednesday, Oct. 28, Powerball drawing resulted in a rollover, producing a $53 million jackpot for the next drawing. The winning Powerball numbers were: 03 – 11 – 26 – 46 – 51 and the Powerball was 23. The Power Play multiplier was 5.
More than 67,000 Florida Powerball players won prizes in the game. Prize payouts are as follows:
— 2 players matched five numbers, each winning $200,000.00.
— 6 players matched four numbers plus the Powerball, each winning $10,000.00.
— 127 players matched four numbers, each winning $100.00.
— 139 players matched three numbers plus the Powerball, each winning $100.00.
— 5,531 players matched three numbers, each winning $7.00.
— 2,542 players matched two numbers plus the Powerball, each winning $7.00.
— 15,090 players matched one number plus the Powerball, each winning $4.00.
— 28,682 players matched only the Powerball, each winning $3.00.
— 15,325 players added Power Play and matched one of the non-jackpot winning combinations listed above, multiplying their non-jackpot winnings by up to five times.
Power Play is an add-on feature to Powerball that allows players to multiply their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five times for $1 more per play. Power Play players who match five numbers win $1 million – the original match 5 prize multiplied by five. All other non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by the Power Play multiplier, from two through five, selected at random at the start of each drawing.
The next Powerball drawing will be held Saturday, Oct. 31, at 10:59 p.m.
Powerball is a multi-state, mega-jackpot lotto game that is played in 30 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The game is administered by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). The game’s starting jackpot is $20 million, and increases with each rollover if no one matches all five numbers plus the Powerball.
