The Powerball jackpot climbed to an estimated $1.2 billion after no players hit it big Monday night.
The winning numbers of the October 2nd drawing were 12, 26, 27, 43, 47 and the Powerball 5. The Power Play was 2X.
Despite no one matching all six numbers, several players took home second-tier prizes: Two players in Delaware and Michigan matched the five white numbers to win $1 million prizes, and players in New York and South Carolina who purchased the Power Play option each won $2 million.
The jackpot for the Wednesday night’s drawing will be among the largest lottery prizes of all time.
