$1 Million Winning Powerball Ticket Bought in Detroit; Jackpot Climbs to $1.9 Billion

No one matched all six numbers to win Saturday night’s Powerball jackpot, but one Michigan Lottery player is $1 million richer after the drawing.

The player matched the five white balls drawn Saturday night – 28-45-53-56-69 – to win a $1 million prize. The winning ticket was bought at the K&G Deli, located at 5625 Conner Street in Detroit.

With no jackpot winner in Saturday’s drawing, the Powerball jackpot now stands at $1.9 billion with a cash option of $929 million. The next Powerball drawing will take place Monday night.

If a lucky player wins the $1.9 billion jackpot, it will be the largest Lottery jackpot ever won. The current world record jackpot is $1.586 billion. That Powerball jackpot was won on Jan. 13, 2016 and was split by three winning tickets purchased in California, Florida, and Tennessee.

The last Michigan player to win a Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis, of Waterford. Davis won the game’s $70 million jackpot on Feb. 12, 2020.

A $1.05 billion Mega Millions jackpot currently holds the record for the largest prize ever won in Michigan. That prize was won in January 2021 by an Oakland County lottery club and is the fourth largest prize won of all time.

Powerball tickets may be purchased until 9:45 p.m. Monday at retailers throughout the state. Tickets also may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com.

Powerball plays may be purchased for $2 each at Lottery retailers across the state and online at MichiganLottery.com. A “Power Play” option that multiplies non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times to a maximum of $2 million may be added to any Powerball play for only $1. For an additional $1 per play, Double Play may be added to a Powerball ticket, giving players a second chance to win up to $10 million in the nightly Double Play drawing.

The Powerball drawing takes place at 10:59 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday and may be watched live online at: http://www.powerball.com. Powerball tickets are sold in 45 states, Washington D.C., U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
