For the last Powerball drawing, on Saturday, Oct. 3, the winning numbers were 18 – 31 – 36 – 43 – 47, with a red Powerball of 20. The optional $1 Power Play multiplier was 2X.
While no one hit the big jackpot, the drawing proved fruitful for two fortuitous winners out of Ohio. Both tickets matched all five white numbers to establish a base earning of $1 million. However, one ticket opted for the $1 Power Play, which boosted that prize to $2 million.
