The Powerball jackpot stands at $40 million for the winning ticket on Saturday, Sept. 7. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing will be $28.7 million.

The winning Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time, with Powerball results usually posted within five minutes.

In most states, ticket sales halt at least one hour before the drawing, but a state is allowed to end sales earlier, such as Illinois, which stops sales three hours before the drawing. In Maryland and New Jersey, ticket sales end at 9:59 p.m.; in Virginia, they close at 10 p.m. Check with your state lottery for the cut-off time.

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, September 7, are: 11, 20, 41, 42, 56 and the Powerball of 06.

The largest Powerball jackpot in history was $1.586 billion, which was split by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

A player in South Carolina claimed the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot on Oct. 23, 2018, game officials said; the winner chose not to be identified.

To win the Powerball jackpot a player must match all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338, which doesn’t change even if more players buy tickets when the jackpot is enormous.

You have a better chance of winning the Powerball jackpot if you let the computer select your numbers, according to the officials with the lottery. About 75 percent of winning tickets over the years had numbers picked by a computer.

Powerball Numbers For 09/07/19: Saturday Jackpot is $40 Million

The Powerball jackpot for 09/07/19 is $40 million. The Saturday night drawing was held shortly after 11 p.m.

The Powerball numbers for 09/07/19 are:

  • Powerball: 06
  • Power Play: 2x

Tonight’s 09/07/19 jackpot is estimated at $40 million, with a cash option of $28.7 million. The jackpot could increase if sales further lottery projections, according to officials.

Someone purchased a ticket in New York jackpot of $80 million on Wednesday, which reset the game to its $40 million starting point.

Winning numbers from the 09/04/19 jackpot of $80 million on Wednesday were:

  • First Five: 04-08-30-52-59
  • Powerball: 02
  • Power Play: 10x

The grand prize ticket sold in New York on Wednesday was the second-consecutive Powerball grand prize winner from the Empire State. Also on 09/04/19, there was a ticket sold in Virginia that matched all five white balls for the second prize of $1 million.

The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the jackpot size — according to Powerball’s website.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery and one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2. You can check the numbers for tonight, or any past winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot is reset at $40 million after a jackpot is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings with a Megaplier. Here is the Mega Millions website for more information, or to check any potential past numbers.

Saturday night we will post the Powerball 09/07/19 drawing payouts and tell if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if so.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.
