INDIANAPOLIS – A ticket sold in Indiana matched five numbers for Monday night’s Powerball drawing, making it worth $1 million.
The winning numbers for the Oct. 9 drawing were 16, 34, 46, 55 and 67 with the Powerball of 14. No one won the $1.56 billion jackpot.
Indiana wasn’t the only state with a big winner. Tickets sold in California, Oregon and Virginia are worth $1 million. A player in Florida added Power Play, doubling the prize to $2 million. Those tickets matched all five numbers but missed the Powerball.
The $1 million ticket was sold at Tobacco Road in Newburgh. A $50,000 winning ticket was also purchased at a BP in Michigan City.
With no jackpot winner, Powerball’s grand prize rolls over to $1.73 billion for Wednesday’s drawing, making it the second-largest Powerball and U.S. lottery jackpot, trailing only the $2.04 Powerball jackpot from November 2022.
The upcoming drawing will mark the 36th of this jackpot run. The last time someone claimed the jackpot was July 19, when a ticket purchased in California hit all numbers for the $1.08 billion prize.
Jackpot winners have two choices: they can elect for an annual payout of the $1.73 billion doled out over 29 years or take a lump sum estimated at $756.6 million.
Powerball tickets cost $2 and are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
