Did anyone win the Powerball jackpot Feb. 5, 2014? Check your tickets now. You could be the lucky jackpot winner! Tonight's Powerball winning numbers were announced at 10:59 p.m. The Powerball results are 8, 17, 32, 57, 59, and the red Powerball number is 24, New Jersey Lottery officials announced Wednesday, Feb. 5.
The estimated jackpot amount for the Feb. 5 drawing is $215 million annuity, or $124.1 million in cash. Both options are before taxes. Because the winning Powerball numbers were drawn just minutes ago, it's still too early to predict a lottery winner.
In other lottery news this week, New Jersey Lottery Executive Director Carole Hedinger announced that another Powerball millionaire was minted in the last drawing. The New Jersey Powerball winner matched five out of six white Powerball winning numbers, missing only the red Powerball number for a $1 million prize. The $1 million Powerball winning ticket was purchased in Hudson County at Sky Light Wine & Spirit, LLC., 6714 Park Ave., Guttenberg for the Saturday, Feb. 1 drawing.
If no one matches all six Powerball winning numbers Wednesday, Feb. 5, the next grand prize will most likely reach $250 million or more! Good luck to all who played the Powerball Wednesday night! What would you do with the $215 million jackpot if you end up being the Powerball jackpot winner? Would you buy a new car, send your kids to college, or go on a cruise?
The Powerball winning numbers are drawn live Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 10:59 p.m. EST in Florida. The Powerball game is played in 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each.
