Congratulations to all the Feb. 22, 2014 Powerball winners! Check your tickets now. You could be one of the lucky lottery winners. The Powerball winning numbers are 2, 3, 13, 14, 54, and the red Powerball number is 4.
Saturday's drawing produced 450,710 Powerball winners, but unfortunately no one was lucky enough to match all six Powerball winning numbers and take home the $40 million jackpot check. The good news is the jackpot rolled over and is now worth a whopping $50 million for the next drawing.
Congrats to the Powerball Lottery Winners!
Surprisingly, there were no $2 million Power Play winners in the Feb. 22 drawing either. Fortunately, there was one (1) Match 5 + 0 Powerball winner that managed to win $1 million from the New York Lottery. The $1 million Powerball winner matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for the second-tier prize. Had the New York Powerball winner spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option, their prize would have instantly doubled from $1 million to $2 million. Better luck next time!
Additionally, there were seventeen (17) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each in the Feb. 22 drawing. Five (5) of those Powerball winners purchased the Power Play option which instantly increased their prize to $50,000. 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 for $590.5 million. One Florida Powerball winner matched all six Powerball winning numbers, including the red Powerball number for the Saturday, May 18 drawing.
