There were no big treats from the Halloween night Powerball drawing, as none of the tickets sold matched all six numbers. The winning numbers drawn Monday were: white balls 13, 19, 36, 39, 59 and the red power ball 13.
The lack of a winner means the next drawing Wednesday night will be for a massive $1.2 billion jackpot, the 4th-largest in U.S. history.
While some numbers have a better chance of being winners, it seems where you buy your tickets can also impact your chances of walking away with the big prize.
More jackpot-winning tickets have been sold in Pennsylvania than in any other state, Powerball records show. A total of 18 winners have been recorded in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including the most recent jackpot in early August worth $122.4 million.
This year, winning tickets have already been sold in Pennsylvania, Vermont, Arizona, Connecticut, California and Wisconsin. That doesn’t necessarily mean a winner can’t hail from one of those states again — in 2008, for example, Pennsylvania had back-to-back jackpot winners.
Florida has sold the second-most jackpot-winning tickets at 16. That includes the largest Powerball jackpot ever, a $1.586 billion pot split between winners in Florida, California and Tennessee in 2016.
Below are the states where the most Powerball jackpots have been hit:
Indiana and New York: 12
California, Missouri and New Jersey: 11
If you’re lucky enough to win the jackpot during Monday night’s drawing, you can receive your pot as an annuity (30 graduated payments over 29 years) or as a lump sum. According to Powerball, the jackpot has a cash value of $596 million.
Good luck everyone!
