Lottery players looking to get rich quick were on the edge of their seats Wednesday night as the numbers were drawn for the astounding $1.2 billion Powerball jackpot.
The winning numbers were 2, 11, 22, 35 and 60. The Powerball was 23.
The jackpot, a cash value of $596.7 million, is the second-largest sum of money in Powerball history and the largest prize in more than six years.
There have been 38 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner since early August.
However, some lucky people won smaller prizes in Monday’s Halloween drawing. There were 5.4 million winning tickets for a total of $59.5 million in prizes.
Ticket-holders in New York, California, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Texas won one million bucks by matching all five white balls on Monday.
The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million.
The largest Powerball prize ever won — $1.586 billion — was set in 2016
The next Powerball drawing is on Saturday night.
