Powerball kicked off its 30th birthday week Monday night with a $352.5 million jackpot, the second-largest for the game this year. The estimated cash payout was roughly $210 million.

The winning numbers were: 8-33-55-59-62 and the Powerball was 18. The Power Play was 2x.

Nobody drew all six winning numbers, raising the estimated jackpot on Wednesday to $370 million. It also appears there were no $1 million or $2 million winners.

Winning tickets have been sold for two jackpots this year prior to Monday's drawing. Two tickets sold in California and Wisconsin shared $632.6 million in January and one ticket in Connecticut won $185.3 million.

Tuesday will mark 30 years since the first tickets for Powerball were sold. Friday will be the 30th anniversary of the first drawing. Powerball said the game has given out 1.75 billion prizes since its launch in 1992, including:

  • 393 jackpot winning tickets
  • 470 tickets winning $2 million
  • 2,424 tickets winning $1 million
  • $25 billion in jackpots
  • $23 billion in lower-tier cash prizes
  • Raised $27 billion to help fund public services and programs

The largest Powerball jackpot in history, which is also the largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever, was $1.586 billion split between three tickets in California, Florida and Tennessee in 2016.

Indiana has the most jackpot-winning tickets sold with 39. Maine, Mississippi, North Dakota, Vermont, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Wyoming have never had a jackpot-winning ticket sold.

The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 24.9. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. 

Powerball is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Tuesday's drawing for Mega Millions, the other big multi-state lottery, is estimated at $20 million.
