The Monday night Powerball drawing is worth an estimated $253 million with a cash value of  $178.9 million. The winning lottery numbers drawn were 18, 26, 28, 38, 47. The Powerball number was 17 with a Power Play 2X.

Since the last Saturday jackpot went unclaimed which was an estimated $243 million with a cash value of $171.9 million, Monday's Powerball jackpot climbed to an estimated $253 million with a cash value of  $178.9 million. However, no one won the jackpot.

Four players won the third prize, which is $50,000, while another with a Power Play purchase won $100,000. They matched four of the white ball numbers and the red Powerball. Aside from these, a lot of smaller prizes were given for the latest draw. There are 246 players who matched four white ball numbers, which put their winnings at $100, while 68 people have Power Play, garnering them a win of $200 each.

During the Saturday drawing, there were two players who managed to win $1 million. The two hit Match 5 on the last draw. One of the tickets which matched the five numbers was sold at Lichine’s Liquor & Deli at 7107 South Land Park Drive, Sacramento, according to KCRA 3. Lichine’s will get more than $8,000 for selling the ticket. 

Meanwhile, the other one was sold in California valued at $1,675,676 as California lottery prizes depend on ticket sales and number of winners. They differ from the fixed second prizes offered in other participating states. 

Both second-prize winners matched five numbers, but not the Powerball. Also several smaller prizes were given recently, with 16 players matching four of the white ball numbers and the red Powerball, which gave them a win amounting to $50,000.

Get your lotto tickets and win, it is as simple as it can get. To take home the jackpot, a player must match the six numbers on their ticket to the drawn six-number combination. The five numbers need to be selected from 1 to 69 for the white balls, while the remaining number is selected from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

The Powerball costs $2 per play. Powerball is available in 45 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. 

Drawings are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. ET.  Meanwhile the sales cut-off times vary depending on the selling jurisdiction, mostly by one to two hours before the drawing schedule.

The Powerball drawing is aired live on TV stations throughout the state; WBKB-TV 11 (CBS), WDIV-TV 4 (NBC), WNEM-TV 5 (CBS), WXSP-TV (MyNetwork TV), WLAJ-TV 53 (ABC), WMKG-TV 38 (IND), WLUC-TV 6 (NBC/FOX) and WGTU-TV 29/WGTQ-TV 8 (ABC).
