Feb. 12 Powerball Lottery Winners
Although there are no Powerball jackpot winners or $2 million Power Play winners in the Feb. 12 drawing, there are eight (8) Match 5 + 0 Powerball winners. The $1 million Powerball winners matched five out of six white Powerball winning numbers, missing only the red Powerball number for second-tier prizes.
The Feb. 12 Powerball millionaires purchased their winning tickets in California, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, New York, West Virginia, and two winners in Pennsylvania. Had these Powerball winners spent an extra dollar on Power Play tickets, they may have seen their prize winnings doubled to $2 million. The California Lottery winner will end up with just $723,452, due to California's pari-mutuel system.
Additionally, there are forty-two (42) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each in the Feb. 12 drawing. Three (3) of those Powerball winners bought Power Play options for an extra dollar and will have their prizes instantly doubled to $20,000. Each winner matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, AND the red Powerball number for the third-tier prize.
