Yet another Powerball drawing concluded on Monday without a jackpot winner, sending Wednesday’s jackpot to new heights. For Oct. 5, the Powerball grand prize steps up to an estimated $353 million annuity. The cash value of the prize, if a winner chooses to take it in a single payment, is $185.6 million before taxes.

The largest prize paid out in Monday’s relatively uneventful drawing was $50,000 to six different players, who matched four of the five white balls, plus the red Powerball. No players hit that combo with Power Play, which would have quadrupled the prize to $200,000. The Power Play multiplier drawn was 4x in that drawing.

Check tonight’s winning Powerball numbers below, after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

PA Lottery scratchers paid out over $200 million last month

Scratch-off winners in PA claimed $203.5 million in prizes in September according to the PA Lottery’s monthly report. The total amount won is about average, but was nudged higher by a few major prizes.

The largest prize won on a single ticket was $5 million on the $5 Million Money Maker ticket, claimed by a player in Dauphin County. That ticket is the PA Lottery’s only ticket with a $50 price tag.

Two other tickets awarded prizes of $3 million each. Those prizes were claimed by players from Allegheny and Chester counties. Additionally, two top prizes of $1 million each were hit by players from Schuylkill and Allegheny counties.
