The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $82 million with a cash option of $64.2 million.

The winning numbers were: 06, 10, 31, 37, 44. Powerball: 23, Power Play: 2x.

No one across the country hit Wednesday’s $72 million million jackpot. There were also no second-prize, $1 million ticket sold.

In New Jersey, the largest prize won by a single ticket on Wednesday was $200, state lottery officials said.

Wednesday’s winning numbers were: 21, 37, 52, 53, and 58. The Powerball drawn was 5 with a Megaplier of 2x.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million, while the odds are 913,129 to 1 of winning the third prize of at least $50,000.

Powerball is played on Wednesday and Saturday in 45 states, Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence reopened last month by appointment only. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

Winning lottery tickets, which had previously been granted a claim extension due to the coronavirus and are more than a year old, will now expire on Monday, Nov. 16.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.
