NEW YORK (WABC) — The numbers were drawn for Saturday’s $640 million Powerball jackpot.

Saturday’s winning numbers were:

67-20-65-14-39 Powerball: 2

There were no grand prize winners in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing.

Next week’s jackpot is expected to swell in excess of $850 million.

Friday night’s winning numbers were:

3-11-12-38-43, with 15 as the Mega Ball

Eight $1 million second prizes were sold — including two in New Jersey, and one on Long Island. Those three lucky lottery players will each receive $1 million.

Two in New Jersey:
– Bergen County: Food Mart 4 U, 235 Patterson Ave., Wallington
– Sussex County: 7-Eleven #36051, 85 Sparta Ave., Sparta.

One in New York:
– Hicksville . Location: Nassau, Cavana Salvador Inc, 99 Levittown Pkwy, Hicksville (Quick Pick)

The other second prize winners were in California, Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin.

Saturday’s Powerball jackpot isn’t exactly small change either with a current jackpot of $640 million. The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.

It’s been nearly two years since a lottery jackpot has grown so large. No one has won either game’s top prize in months.

The listed jackpot amounts refer to winners who opt for an annuity, paid over 30 years. Winners nearly always choose cash prizes, which for Powerball would be $478.7 million. The estimated cash prize for the next Mega Millions jackpot is $628.2 million.

Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball also is offered in Puerto Rico.
