The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $102 million with a cash option of $80.7 million.

The winning numbers were: 18, 20, 27, 45, 65. Powerball: 06. Power Play: 2x.

No one across the country hit Wednesday’s $91 million jackpot. A second-prize, $1 million ticket bought in North Carolina matched five numbers but not the Powerball.

In New Jersey, a $150,000 ticket was sold at Sam’s Food Market on Route 36 in Hazlet, state lottery officials said. It matched four numbers plus the Powerball and was bought with the Power Play option for an extra $1, tripling the normal $50,000 third prize.

Wednesday’s winning numbers were: 1, 3, 13, 44 and 56. The Powerball drawn was 26 with a Power Play of 3X.

The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million, while the odds are 913,129 to 1 of winning the third prize of at least $50,000.

Powerball is played on Wednesday and Saturday in 45 states, Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence reopened last month by appointment only. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

Winning lottery tickets, which had previously been granted a claim extension due to the coronavirus and are more than a year old, will now expire on Monday, Nov. 16.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.

The last player from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $70 million playing Powerball in February. With her winnings, Davis said she planned to buy a new house and car.

And while she was a lucky winner, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland last year went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.
