# Check the winning numbers for Monday’s draw

Unless you bought your ticket in Connecticut, it’s unlikely you won the estimated \$183 million Powerball jackpot on Monday. The winning ticket was sold in the Nutmeg State. Nevertheless, you might have gained something.

Here are the winning numbers for Monday night’s Powerball draw: 16, 25, 27, 49, 55, and the red Powerball is 17. The Power Play is 3X.

A ticket matching only the five white ball numbers for a \$1 million payout was sold in Michigan.

Wednesday night’s draw jackpot is awarded at \$20 million, a cash value of \$13.4 million. Drawings can be viewed live on the Powerball website.

## When are the Powerball drawings?

Powerball drawings take place three times a week, every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET.

## How to Play Powerball

Powerball costs \$2 per game.

To play, select five numbers from one to 69 for the white balls, then select one number from one to 26 for the red Powerball.

You can choose your lucky numbers from a game slip or let the lottery terminal choose your numbers randomly.

To win, match one of the 9 ways to win:

5 white balls + 1 red Powerball = Grand Prize

5 white balls = 1 million dollars

4 white balls = 1 red Powerball = \$50,000

4 white balls = \$100

3 white balls + 1 red Powerball = \$100

3 white balls = \$7

2 white balls + 1 red Powerball = \$7

1 white ball + 1 red Powerball = \$4

1 red Powerball = \$4

There is a chance to have your winnings increased two, three, four, five and 10 times through Power Play for an extra \$1 per play. Players can multiply non-jackpot winnings up to 10 times when the jackpot is \$150 million or less.
