The Powerball winning numbers jackpot is closing in on a record payout. According to Powerball.com, tonight's winning Powerball jackpot is worth an estimated $400 million with a one-time payment option of $227.8 million.
The Chicago Tribune reported on Feb. 19 that no one matched all six numbers in last Saturday's drawing, but nearly $21 million was paid out in winnings, including eight one million dollar winning tickets sold in FL, GA, IA, MI, NY, OH, PA.
No one has yet to win the Powerball jackpot so far in 2014, but if someone matches all six numbers tonight they will be collecting the sixth largest lottery jackpot in US history.
Not a bad reason to stop and play.
According to a Michigan.gov lottery update on Feb. 19, nearly 37,000 winning tickets were sold for the last drawing, including two $10,000 winner and two one million dollar winners. The winning tickets sold here in Michigan were purchased from Howard City Moblie Mart in Howard City, and Grand Rapids Gas Inc.
If you happened to play the Powerball last week at one of these locations, you could be a millionaire.
The winning numbers for the last drawing were 02, 09, 14, 21, 23 and the Powerball was 3.
