A new week brings another chance at a Powerball jackpot that is over $100 million higher than the last grand prize awarded back in August. For tonight, Oct. 3, the jackpot increases to an estimated $336 million. The lump sum cash value of the main prize is $176.7 million, before withholding.
On Saturday night, there was no jackpot winner, but thousands of tickets won prizes in the drawing as usual. The largest prize was $2 million won on a ticket sold in Florida. That ticket was sold with the optional Power Play and matched the first five white balls, but not the red Powerball. Without the Power Play option, the prize would have been $1 million. Another ticket, sold in Wisconsin, matched the same numbers without Power Play to win the lesser prize.
Check tonight’s winning Powerball numbers below, after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

Powerball grand prize winners in Pennsylvania
A Pennsylvania player hit the most recent jackpot on Aug. 3 and claimed the prize of more than $206 million. Can another PA Lottery player hit the big one tonight? Possibly! In fact, in 2008, two PA players hit the Powerball jackpot consecutively – both in the month of October.
Other states have had consecutive winners, as well. In 2021, players from just two states won four of the six total jackpot prizes for the year.
Two separate players in New Jersey hit the second and third jackpot prizes awarded last year, both in the month of January. Later in the year, two players from Florida hit consecutive jackpot wins, about two months apart.
