The big question on everyone's mind is, "Did anyone win the Powerball jackpot Sept. 21, 2013?" The Powerball winning numbers and results are 12, 17, 45, 54, 58, and the red Powerball number is 13. Unfortunately, no one won the $40 million jackpot Saturday night. The good news is, there were 562,173 Powerball winning tickets sold with prizes totaling $8,741,717, Washington Post announced Sunday, Sept. 22. Are you one of the lucky Powerball winners?
Congratulations to All the Powerball Lottery Winners!
Although there were no Powerball jackpot winners in the Sept. 21 drawing, and no $2 million Power Play winners either, there were five (5) Match 5 + 0 winners for $1 million each. The $1 million Powerball winners matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for second-tier prizes.
The Powerball millionaires purchased their tickets in Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, North Dakota and New Jersey. Had the winners purchased Power Play tickets for an extra dollar they would have instantly doubled their prize winnings from $1 million to $2 million!
Additionally, there were twenty-four (24) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each in the Sept. 21 drawing. Three (3) of those Powerball winners bought Power Play options for an extra dollar and will have their prizes instantly increased to $40,000. Each winner matched four out of five Powerball winning numbers, AND the red Powerball number for the third-tier prize.
The largest Powerball jackpot in lottery history was $590.5 million annuity (cash option of $370.8 million). It was won by one Florida lottery winner on May 18, 2013. See the article Florida Powerball lottery winner Gloria MacKenzie claims massive $590M jackpot for more details
