Powerball winning numbers for 11/2/22

In 38 Powerball spins since August 3, there has been no jackpot winner.

WASHINGTON – If no one wins in Wednesday night’s drawing, the Powerball jackpot could become the biggest prize in lottery game history.

The winning numbers for Wednesday’s draw were 2-11-22-35-60, Powerball 23 and Power Play 2.

The prize has grown to $1.2 billion, the fourth-biggest jackpot in the US, after no one matched all six numbers for Monday’s Halloween draw. In 38 draws as of August 3, there was no jackpot winner.

The Multistate Lottery Association, which oversees the Powerball game, reported 131.6 million Powerball tickets were sold for Monday’s draw. As a result, 36.3% of all possible number combinations were covered, with millions of players choosing the same combinations.

With jackpot odds of 1 in 292.2 million, that means about 186 million number combinations were not covered, explaining why no one won Monday’s big prize.

Winners will have the option of annuity payments, which are calculated over 29 years. Nearly all of the winners chose the cash prize, which is worth $596.7 million.

The biggest prize is the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won by three ticket holders in 2016. After a winning ticket matched the drawing, the Powerball jackpot started again at $20 million. and keep increasing each spin until the prize is won.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
