Saturday's Powerball drawing night did not have a grand prize winner for the estimated $52 million jackpot, with a cash option of $36.6 million. The next drawing will take place Wednesday and with the jackpot growing to $63 million, with a $44.9 million cash option.

The winning lottery numbers drawn on Saturday, June 19, were 4, 22, 35, 38, 39, with a red Powerball of 20. The Power Play was 2X.

There were no grand prize winners, and there were also no reports of instant millionaires.

Players who would have hit the Match 5 could have won $1 million. Whereas, players who would have hit the Match 5 with the Power Play could have won $2 million.

However, several smaller monetary wins resulted from the night. Six players hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball and won $50,000 each.

Meanwhile, five players hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball with the Power Play and won $100,000. The rest of the winnings from the latest lottery drawing ranged between $4 and $200.

The latest drawing comes more than a week after a man in North Carolina claimed a winning Match 5 ticket for $1 million.

It took the winner almost three weeks to realize that he was holding on to a winning Powerball ticket.

“Honestly, I put it in my wallet and forgot about it,” he explained. “I’ve been all over the place and I had a million dollars in my pocket. We’ve been working around the ponds and everything and I didn’t know!” the winner said.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as the U.S. Virgin Islands, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
