The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing has rolled back to an estimated $20 million after someone who bought a ticket in Maryland won Wednesday’s $731.7 million prize.
Saturday’s winning numbers were: 5, 8, 17, 27, 28. The Powerball drawn was 14 with a Power Play of 3X.
In addition to the jackpot-wining ticket, three $1 million tickets were bought in New Jersey for Wednesday’s drawing. In all, 13 second-prize tickets were sold across the country.
Six third-prize tickets were also bought in the Garden State — five valued at $50,000 and one worth $150,000. The jackpot was the fifth-largest in U.S. lottery history.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were: 40, 53, 60, 68, 69. The Powerball drawn was 22 with a Power Play of 3X.
Before Wednesday, the Powerball jackpot hasn’t been won since Sept. 16, when someone who bought a ticket in Ballston Spa, New York, captured the $94.6 million top prize.
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 is open by appointment only. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.
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.

The last player from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $70 million playing Powerball in February. With her winnings, Davis said she planned to buy a new house and car.
And while she was a lucky winner, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland in 2019 went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.
If you’d like to be the next player from Michigan to win a huge lottery prize, take a look at these tips from lottery expert Richard Lustig. The author of “Learn How To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The Lottery” has won more than $1 million in Florida by winning top jackpot prizes in smaller games.
