Powerball Results, Numbers for 10/17/20: Did Anyone Win the $82 Million?

The winning numbers in Saturday evening’s drawing of the Powerball were 6, 10, 31, 37, and 44. The Powerball was 23 and the Power Play was X2.

No one has claimed the $82 million jackpot for the October 17 draw, according to the Powerball website. As a result, the prize money will now roll over to the next drawing on Thursday, October 22. The estimated jackpot then will be $91 million (with a cash value of $72 million).

Even though no players scooped the jackpot in Saturday night’s draw, there were some big winners.

A player in Puerto Rico correctly matched five white balls to win a $2 million prize, thanks to a Power Play purchase.

Meanwhile, five other players matched four white balls and the Powerball correctly to win $50,000 prizes. Five others doubled their prize money to $100,000 with a Power Play purchase on top.

The Powerball jackpot was reset to $20 million a month ago after a player in New York scooped the $94 million jackpot in the September 16 draw. The winning ticket was sold at Minogue’s Beverage located at 2421 Route 9 in Ballston Spa, according to the Powerball website.

Before then, the jackpot hadn’t been won since August 12, when one lucky player in Florida matched all five white balls and the Powerball to scoop a massive $169 million payout.

The Powerball jackpot was also won twice in June. One winner, Thomas Cook, split his $22 million prize with his best friend Joseph Feeney. The pair from Wisconsin shook hands in 1992, agreeing that they would split their winnings if either one ever won the Powerball jackpot, no matter no bought the ticket.

Earlier in the month, a player in West Virginia scooped a $136 million jackpot.
