Last night's Powerball jackpot was only the 4th time in the game's history that it topped the $1 billion dollar mark.

So was there a grand prize winner? The answer is no.

No one claimed the 4th largest jackpot in Powerball history but there were several lucky tickets sold in New York.

While no one is a billionaire, there were 7 tickets sold in New York State that matched 4 out of 5 numbers and had the Powerball number which means each ticket won $50,000.

Last Night's Powerball numbers were: 12-26-27-43-47 with the Powerball of 5

Since no one won the grand prize, the jackpot has increased to $1.20 billion dollars, which would make it the 3rd largest jackpot prize in Powerball history.
