BALTIMORE, MD—Get your tickets now for Monday night’s Powerball drawing, which features the eighth-largest jackpot in the game’s history.

No one hit the jackpot Saturday, which sent it rolling to an estimated annuity of $610 million for the October 24, drawing with an estimated cash value of $292.6 million.

Two lucky Marylanders won $50,000 third-tier prizes in Saturday’s drawing while a total of 32,951 state residents won prizes ranging from $4 to $100. The winning numbers for the October 22 drawing were 19, 25, 48, 55 and 60; the Powerball was 18 and the Power Play multiplier was x2.

The two Maryland Lottery retailers that sold $50,000-winning tickets in the October 22 drawing are Express Mart, located at 15709 Hall Road in Bowie (Prince George’s County) and 7-Eleven located at 8101 Fenton Street in Silver Spring (Montgomery County).

The Powerball jackpot has been hit five times this year, with the top amount of $632.6 million hit January 5 and split between two tickets sold in California and Wisconsin.

Lottery officials encourage all winners to sign the backs of their tickets immediately and put them in a safe location. They get 182 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.
