Powerball Climbs to $156 Million for Tonight’s Drawing
No one matched all six numbers in Monday's Powerball drawing, and the estimated jackpot has now climbed to $156 million for tonight's drawing.
The one-time cash payout would be $109 million.
The winning numbers drawn Monday were: 1-15-26-63-65, Powerball: 16.
A basic Powerball ticket costs $2, and to claim the big prize you'll need to match five numbers (1-69), plus the Mega Ball (1-26). The odds? 1 in 292,301,388. Assuming you win the Powerball jackpot Wednesday, you can take the lump-sum cash option and take home $429 million.
No one matched all six numbers in last night's Mega Millions drawing, driving that estimated jackpot for Friday night's drawing to $50 million.
