The Powerball jackpot winning numbers are climbing their way towards a half billion dollars and may get there by the next drawing or two if no one hits it big tonight. Tonight's winning Powerball jackpot is worth an estimated $317 million, or a $176.3 million onetime payout.
If you match all six winning numbers tonight you could tell your boss – game over!
No one matched all six numbers in last Wednesday’s drawing, but over $14 million was paid out in winnings, including five $1 million winners and one $2 million winner.
The five one million dollar winning tickets were sold in GA, IN, MA, NE, NY and the $2 million winner was also sold in PA.
In case you missed the winning numbers in the last drawing they were 11, 19, 33, 42, 52 and the Powerball was 33.
Here in Michigan, according to a Sept. 14 update, two lucky winners collected a $10,000 prize by matching 4 white balls and the Powerball, while over 30,000 tickets claimed prizes ranging from $4 to $200.
The odds of winning the Powerball are of course astronomical, actually according to the Powerball website they are 1 in 175,223,510, but why not spend $2 and take a shot at financial freedom?
Hey, someone is going to win eventually, and it may be you!
