There was no grand prize winner for the Saturday night Powerball drawing, which had a jackpot worth an estimated \$278 million with a cash value of \$196.6 million. However, some players still managed to become instant millionaires.

The winning lottery numbers drawn on Saturday, Dec. 4 were 10, 40, 45, 56, 67. The Powerball number was 2 with a 2X Power Play.

Since there were no tickets that matched all six winning numbers, Monday's jackpot will climb to an estimated \$280 million with a cash payout of \$205 million.

Following the latest Powerball drawing, a player from Michigan and another from New Jersey hit the Match 5, winning \$1 million each. If the players would have hit the Match 5 with a Power Play purchase, they would have won \$2 million.

Eighteen players matched four of the white ball numbers and the red Powerball, which put their winnings for the night at \$50,000.

Meanwhile, there was only one player that hit the Match 4 and the red Powerball, winning \$100,000 with the Power Play purchase. The rest of the prizes from the night ranged between \$4 and \$200.

To win the jackpot, a player must match the six numbers on their ticket to the drawn six-number combination. Five numbers are selected between 1 to 69 for the white balls, and a number is selected from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.

Powerball tickets cost \$2 per play. The odds of winning are 1 in 292.2 million.
