The winning numbers for the October 30th Powerball draw were 4, 26, 42, 50, 60 and Powerball 2. There was no jackpot winner, so the jackpot rolled over to an estimated $470 million for the next draw.
No one also matched the Power Play number, so the $2 million prize for that was also rolled over. The next Powerball draw will be held on November 2nd at 10:59 pm Eastern Time at the Florida Lottery’s studio in Tallahassee.
Did anybody win the Powerball for October 30th?

What happens if you win 2 numbers in Powerball?
If you win 2 numbers in Powerball, you will win a prize. The amount of the prize will depend on a number of factors such as the amount of money you wagered and the particular numbers you won. Generally, however, if you match two numbers, you can expect to win a minimum of $4.
In some cases, you may be able to win more. For example, if you match the Powerball number and two white numbers, your prize amount could be much greater depending on the total amount wagered. It’s important to note that when you win two numbers in Powerball, your chances of winning the jackpot are still fairly slim.
In fact, your chances of winning the jackpot with one ticket matching two numbers are only 1 in 92,201.
How much do you win if you match 1 number on Powerball?
If you match only 1 number on Powerball, you will win the Powerball $4 prize. However, the exact amount you win depends on how many people also match the same number, and if anyone wins the jackpot or any of the other prizes.
For example, if you are the only person who matches 1 number, you will win the full $4 prize. But if multiple people match 1 number, then the $4 prize will be split among all the winners. Additionally, if you combine your 1 number match with the Power Play option (for an additional fee), then you will win 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times the normal amount depending on the Power Play multiplier that’s selected.
How many numbers do you have to have to win on the Powerball?
To win the Powerball jackpot, you will need to match all 5 of the main numbers and the Powerball number. The five main numbers are chosen from a guess range of 1 to 69 while the Powerball number is chosen from a guess range of 1 to 26.
Therefore, you must have a total of 6 numbers to have a chance at winning the Powerball jackpot.
What are the 5 most common Powerball numbers?
The five most common Powerball numbers (drawn from a pool of 69 white balls and 26 red Powerballs) are 26, 16, 41, 22, and 32, according to the official Powerball website. While the Powerball lottery’s record jackpot of $1.
586 billion in 2016 required all five white balls and the red Powerball, the five most common white ball numbers often appear in the winning ticket combinations. That said, it’s important to note that the odds of matching all five white balls plus the red Powerball remain an astronomical 1 in 292,201,338.
Therefore, getting these five numbers (and still hitting the Powerball) is just as unlikely as matching any of the other numbers in the pool.
Does 2 numbers in Powerball win anything?
Yes, if you have two numbers plus the Powerball in a single game, you do win something. The amount will vary depending on how many other winners there are with that same combination, but you will receive a reduced prize for matching two numbers.
The amount can vary from game to game and will always be listed on the Powerball website. Generally speaking, two numbers plus the Powerball will net you somewhere between $4 and $100. If you’re lucky enough to get all five numbers in the game plus the Powerball, then you will be eligible for the big prize.
How much is 3 Powerball numbers?
The cost of playing Powerball is $2 per ticket. For each ticket, you will choose five main numbers from 1 to 69 and one Powerball number from 1 to 26. You can also choose the “Power Play” option, which multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times.
The cost of playing with the Power Play option is an additional $1 per line.
Therefore, the cost of playing 3 Powerball numbers is $6 ($2 per ticket x 3 tickets).
Will 4 numbers win anything in Powerball?
No, 4 numbers alone will not win anything in Powerball. In order to win anything in Powerball, you must match all 5 numbers and the Powerball number. A common misconception is that you can win something with just 4 numbers, as in the game Mega Millions, but that does not apply to Powerball.
In order to win the Powerball jackpot, you must match all 6 numbers. Other prizes can be won by matching fewer than 6 numbers, but no prizes are issued for matching only 4 numbers in Powerball.
Does 3 numbers pay in lotto?
Yes, playing three numbers in the lottery can be a great way to win a prize. It’s a popular option because it gives you the chance to win a smaller prize on a smaller budget.
When you select three numbers, you are essentially playing a three-digit number and it can be among the following combinations: singles, doubles, and triples (three identical numbers). While playing three numbers gives you a lower chance of winning the jackpot compared to a standard lottery, it gives you the opportunity to win some cash prizes from smaller lotteries.
Playing three numbers is most common in state lotteries, where players pick three numbers from 0 to 9 for a chance to win a prize. Generally, players have to match all three numbers to win the first prize, also known as a Pick 3.
If all three matching numbers are consecutive, usually a straight bet, the player can win a bigger prize.
Though the odds of hitting the jackpot with three numbers is much lower than with standard lotteries, the price per play is also much lower. If a two-dollar ticket yields you a prize of a few hundred or several thousand dollars from a Pick 3 or straight bet, it can be a great way to try your luck.
What does 3 draws mean on a Powerball ticket?
On a Powerball ticket, three draws mean that the player is purchasing three chances to win the jackpot. Each Powerball drawing is a chance to win the jackpot, with players having to match all five main numbers and the Powerball number to win.
By purchasing three separate draws, players basically buy three separate tickets that give them three chances of winning the jackpot prize. Aside from the jackpot, other prizes may be available depending on how many numbers a player matches.
