It could be your lucky night after the $1,000,000,000 Powerball drawing.

The winning lottery numbers are 19, 13, 39, 59, 36, and a Powerball number of 13.

For the second time in the game’s history, the Powerball is over $1,000,000,000. It’s hard to imagine that a $2 piece of paper could be that life-changing, but that’s how the game works.

The case option offers more than $497,000,000 after takes and so you would walk away with about $313,000,000.

Powerball player, Kevin Flanagan, spoke with WINK News about what would happen if he won the money.

“We picked the kid’s birthdays, some anniversaries in there, and a couple quick picks. It would change a lot of lives for the better my family, a lot of my friends, help a lot of people around here who are suffering so much,” Flanagan said.

It is Halloween, so what a treat it would be to win over $1,000,000,000. Ticket sales have been cut off for the night, and the odds of winning are 1 in 292,000,000.
