The Powerball jackpot keeps on climbing. For this Monday night drawing, the grand prize has an estimated annuity value of $124 million for Aug. 29. A jackpot winner can always choose to take the lump sum cash value of the prize in a single payment. That cash value tonight is $69.7 million before taxes.
There was no top prize winner in the previous drawing on Saturday, but among the thousands of lower-tier prizes, a player in Texas won a cool $1 million. To win the $1 million second-tier prize, a ticket must match all five white balls drawn, but not the red Powerball.
Check tonight’s winning Powerball numbers below, after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

PA Lottery Treasure Hunt jackpot split by five winners
In a somewhat rare occurrence, five separate tickets hit the PA Lottery Treasure Hunt jackpot on Saturday. The five winners will split the $127,000 prize just as multiple winners would on a Powerball jackpot. Each winner from Saturday will receive $25,400 before taxes.
With a smaller pool of numbers to pick from, it’s more likely for PA Lottery draw games like Treasure Hunt or Cash 5 to have multiple grand prize winners than it is for national games like Powerball. To play Treasure Hunt, players select five numbers between 1 and 30, whereas for Powerball the pool of numbers ranges from 1 to 69. On Powerball, players also have to match the sixth number (the red Powerball), as well, making the odds of hitting it much lower.
Powerball does get multiple jackpot winners on occasion, especially as the prize skyrockets. Generally, the higher the advertised jackpot goes, the more tickets are sold, thus increasing the chance of one or more winners.
