Powerball Numbers For 10/28/20, Wednesday Jackpot was $116 Million

The Powerball jackpot for 10/28/20 is $116 million. Here are the numbers from the Wednesday night drawing.

  • First Five: 11-28-37-40-53
  • Powerball: 13
  • Power Play: 2x

Wednesday night’s 10/28/20 Powerball jackpot was estimated at $116 million, with a cash option of $89.5 million. The jackpot could increase if sales further lottery projections, according to officials.

The winning numbers on Saturday (10/24/20) for the $102 million Powerball jackpot were: 18-20-27-45-65 with a Powerball of 06. The Power Play was 2x.

There was no grand prize winner on Saturday, but there were two tickets sold—one each on California and Louisiana—that matched all five white balls, and just missing out on the red Powerball, for the game’s second prize of $1 million. Had they purchased the Power Play for an extra $1, their second prize would have been worth $2 million.

The last winning Powerball ticket was sold on August 12, 2020 for a jackpot worth $169 million. That ticket was sold in Florida.

Normally, the game would reset to a $40 million minimum, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced Powerball officials to cut the minimum jackpot in half, which began with the 04/11/20 jackpot.

The previous winning ticket was sold on June 10, 2020. The previous winning ticket sold was purchased in New Jersey for the 04/08/20 jackpot worth $190 million. The previous grand prize won before that was $70 million in the 02/12/20 drawing with a ticket purchased in Michigan. The grand prize winner before that was on 01/29/20. That ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Bonita Springs, Florida, for the $394 million grand prize, which had a cash option of $274.6 million.

The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the jackpot size—according to Powerball’s website.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery played every Wednesday and Saturday, and one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Powerball jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million with a Power Play. Tickets are $2. You can check the numbers for tonight, or any past winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot is reset at $20 million after a jackpot is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings with a Megaplier. Here is the Mega Millions website for more information, or to check any potential past numbers.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.
