While there was no jackpot winner, there were six winning tickets.

One in Maryland, one in Texas, two in California, and two in Michigan.

These winners saw the $1 million dollar prize after matching the white balls.

One ticket in Florida played the Power Play, landing them a winning ticket worth $2 million dollars.

The $1 billion dollar jackpot tonight will be the fifth largest jackpot in U.S. history overall. For Powerball specifically it will be the second highest jackpot.

The last jackpot winner was in August when someone in Pennsylvania hit a $206.9 million dollar prize.

In January two winners split the $632.6 million dollar jackpot.
