The Powerball Saturday’s lottery draw jackpot climbed to around $ 635 million, with a cash option of $ 450 million. If anyone wins, it would be at least the 10th biggest jackpot in US lottery history and the fifth biggest Powerball prize.
“The winning numbers were: 28, 38, 42, 47, 52. Powerball: 1. Power play 2x. “
While no one across the country hit the $ 580.8 million jackpot on Wednesday, eight second prize tickets were purchased that matched five numbers, but not the Powerball.
Tickets worth $ 1 million were purchased in Florida, New York, Wisconsin, Indiana. A ticket sold in California is valued at $ 1,361,359. California Lottery prizes vary based on ticket sales and the number of winners. They differ from the second fixed prices offered in other participating states.
Second Prize tickets purchased in Michigan, Ohio and Oklahoma are worth $ 2 million each because the winners spent an additional $ 1 for the Power Play option.
In addition, three $ 50,000 tickets were sold in New Jersey. The third prize tickets were four numbers plus the Powerball.
They were purchased at the following locations:
- Krauszer’s Food Store on Avenel Street in the Avenel section of Woodbridge
- The alcohol depot on Avenue Van Houten in Clifton
- BP Gas on East Jersey Street in Elizabeth
The winning numbers for Wednesday were: 2, 7, 11, 17 and 32. The Powerball shot was 11 with a power play of 3X.
The jackpot has been accumulated 39 times since a Jacksonville sold for $ 286 million, Florida for the June 5 draw. The prize was claimed by “The Love You More Trust,” which chose a one-time lump sum payment of $ 196,706,252 before taxes, according to Powerball officials.
No one touched the $ 10 million Double Play secondary draw on Wednesday. These winning numbers were: 3, 19, 29, 50 and 58. The Double Play Powerball was: 3.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388-1. A player who buys a $ 2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance of matching five numbers and winning at least $ 1 million, while that the odds are 913,129 to 1 of winning third prize of at least $ 50,000.
Powerball is played Monday, Wednesday and Saturday in 45 states, Washington DC, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
