The winning numbers in Saturday night’s Powerball drawing were 4, 22, 35, 38 and 39. The Powerball was 20 and the Power Play was X2.
No one has claimed the $52 million jackpot, according to the Powerball website, meaning the jackpot will rise to an estimated $63 million (with a cash value of $44.9 million) for the next drawing, on Thursday, June 24.
Although there were no winners of the big prize, six people successfully matched four numbers plus the Powerball to win $50,000 prizes, with another five people winning $100,000 thanks to a Power Play purchase.
A further 211 players matched four balls without having the Powerball to win a $100 prize. Eighty-one players tripled their winnings to $300 thanks to Power Plays.
The Powerball jackpot hasn’t been won since a player from Florida scooped $286 million in the June 5 drawing. That winning ticket was bought at a Circle K in Jacksonville.
How to play Powerball
Drawings usually take place twice a week on a Wednesday and Saturday night, at 10:59 p.m. ET. Each draw is broadcast live from the lottery studio which is located in Tallahassee, Florida.
Players select five numbers from 1 to 69, in addition to one red Powerball number from 1 to 26. Each ticket costs $2 per play.
In certain circumstances, players can also multiply non-jackpot prizes by using the Power Play option for an additional $1.
There is a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning any prize, according to Powerball’s official website. The odds of winning the big jackpot are much, much higher at 1 in 292,201,338.
Winners can choose to either select their prize as an annuity or for significantly less, a lump-sum payment. The annuity option sees the winner receive 30 annual payments over the space of 29 years, with each payment increasing by five percent until the 30th and final payment.

Where can you play?
Powerball, along with Mega Millions, is one of the most popular multi-state lotteries in the U.S.
You can play in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Lottery tickets are not sold in Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada and Utah.
You will no longer be able to purchase tickets in Idaho from August 2021 after state lawmakers voted to end the lottery there over concerns about foreign participation.
Later this year, Powerball is set to expand outside the U.S., with Australia included in 2021. The game will also be available to play in the U.K. in 2022.
