November 1: Powerball jackpot winning numbers

In the first Powerball drawing of November, no lucky ticket holder managed to secure the jackpot, causing the prize to swell to an impressive $173 million for the upcoming Saturday drawing. 

The numbers for this drawing were selected just after 11 p.m. ET, and the results are as follows

The winning numbers on Wednesday night were 22, 26, 39, 47, and 63, with the Powerball number being 12. Additionally, there was a Power Play of 3X.

The absence of a jackpot winner means that the potential payout for the next lucky player is an estimated $173 million. 

If a winner opts for the cash option, they could take home a substantial lump sum of over $66.8 million, according to the lottery.

Excitement and anticipation continue to build as participants across the nation eagerly await the next Powerball drawing in hopes of securing this substantial jackpot prize.
