The winning ticket for Monday night’s $842.4 million Powerball drawing came from a Michigan sale.

The Powerball number was 1, and the winning numbers were 12-21-42-44-49.

The ticket was purchased at the Food Castle Of Grand Blanc in Grand Blanc, Michigan, according to the Michigan Lottery.

Final ticket sales drove the prize up to $842.4 million from the $810 million that was first projected. The winning ticket is worth $425.2 million in cash, payable all at once.

According to Powerball, this was the tenth highest lottery prize in the United States and the fifth largest in Powerball history.

Since a record-breaking $1.765 billion winning ticket was sold in southern California in October of last year, nobody has won the Powerball. The thirty-fifth drawing since then was made on Monday.

The Powerball jackpot has a 1 in 292.2 million chance of winning.

After striking it lucky on Monday night, a player from Michigan was able to start the new year with a $842.4 million Powerball prize.

The numbers were selected on Monday night shortly after 11 p.m. ET, and the outcomes are shown below.

The winner on Monday, who hasn’t revealed their identity to the Michigan Lottery yet, might take home $435.2 million if they choose the cash option.

The $842.4 million jackpot that was won on Monday was the second-biggest payout in Michigan history and the fifth-largest Powerball jackpot ever. Before Wednesday’s drawing, it has subsequently been adjusted to a much lower $20 million.

Since October, when a lucky player in California won $1.76 billion, the second-largest reward in the history of the game, the jackpot has been steadily increasing.

Guidelines for Powerball | Each Powerball play costs $2.

To play, choose one number from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball and five numbers for the white balls from 1 to 69.

You have the option to let the lottery machine select your numbers at random or write down your fortunate digits on a play slip.

Match one of the nine methods to win:

  • Grand Prize = 5 white balls plus 1 red Powerball.
  • $1 million times 5 white balls.
  • $50k is equal to 4 white balls plus 1 red Powerball.
  • $100 is equal to 4 white balls.
  • $1 red Powerball plus 3 white balls equals $100.
  • $7 is equal to 3 white balls.
  • $1 red Powerball plus 2 white balls equals $7.
  • One Powerball, red and white, equals $4.
  • $4 is one red Powerball.

With the Power Play, you may multiply your earnings two, three, four, five, and ten times for an extra $1 every play. In cases when the jackpot is $150 million or less, players can multiply non-jackpot wins up to ten times.

All rewards, with the exception of the top prize, are cash only. Sales and the number of winners influence prize payment levels in California.
