BOSTON (WBZNewsRadio) - The Powerball jackpot continues to grow after no winner was drawn Wednesday night. The jackpot is sitting pretty at $800 million, with an estimated cash prize of $383.7 million.

It's the second largest jackpot in Powerball history and the fifth-largest prize in U.S. lottery history.

The winning numbers for the October 26 drawing were: 19-36-37-46-56 and Powerball 24. While no one matched all five numbers, there were six $1 million winners, including one in Connecticut.

As lottery players look forward to the next drawing, WBZ's Brooke McCarthy asked the public what they would do with all that cash.

"Take this money buy my own studio." One man said. Some said they'd buy a house, help out their family and family-run businesses and take care of good old Mom and Dad.

Others had a more detailed plan to manager their new financial status.

"First thing I'd do is get a lawyer and a financial advisor and check with the foundations that are available. Then I'd give part of it away so it'll go to good use." Another said.

The next drawing comes this Saturday, Oct. 29. The odds of winning are just 1 in 292 million.
