Powerball Drawing For 07/20/19: Saturday Jackpot is $53 Million

The Powerball jackpot for 07/20/19 is $53 million. The Saturday night drawing was held shortly after 11 p.m.

The winning numbers are:

  • First Five White Balls: 05-26-36-64-69
  • Powerball: 19
  • Power Play: 3x

Tonight's 07/20/19 jackpot is estimated at $53 million, with a cash option of $34.3 million. The jackpot could increase if sales further lottery projections, according to officials.

After the $180 million jackpot was won last Saturday, the top prize reset to the game's minimum ($40 million) on Wednesday this week.

Winning numbers from 7/17/19 were: 19-43-47-60-68

Powerball: 10

Power Play: 2

There was no grand prize winner on Wednesday, nor were there any tickets that matched all five white balls. Last Saturday 07/13/19, there was a ticket purchased in Tennessee that won the previous pot of $180 million.

The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the jackpot size — according to Powerball's website.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery and one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.
