Congratulations to the latest Powerball lottery winners! The Powerball results for June 28, 2014 were 8, 12, 34, 43, 56, and the red Powerball number was 9. Two lucky lottery winners matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers Saturday night for a $2 million prize, reported WPRI Eyewitness News on Monday, June 30.
One winning Powerball Power Play ticket was purchased at the Stop & Shop supermarket, located at 1300 Ten Rod Rd., in North Kingstown, Rhode Island for the Saturday drawing. As of Monday, June 30, the prize has not yet been claimed according to Rhode Island Lottery officials.
Meanwhile, on Monday, June 30, WPXI.com News also reported that the other $2 million Powerball ticket was sold by the Pennsylvania Lottery. The Pennsylvania Powerball winner also matched five out of six white Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for the June 28 drawing. The lucky ticket was sold at the Sheetz on New Castle Road in Butler Township. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. No one has claimed that prize either.
Saturday's final Powerball jackpot came in at $80 million which would have been paid out to the winner in 30 annual annuity payments. The Powerball lottery winner could have also chosen all cash, which would have brought the one-time cash payout to around $47.8 million. Unfortunately, no one hit the $80 million Powerball jackpot, and there were no $1 million winners either.
In addition to the Pennsylvania and Rhode Island winners, there were thirty-five (35) Match 4 + 1 winners, five (5) of which bought Power Play tickets and will see their prize winnings automatically increased to $20,000. The remaining thirty (30) winners will receive only $10,000 each. The winners matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, AND the red Powerball number for the third-tier prize.
According to the Florida Lottery, the next Powerball drawing is scheduled for July 2, 2014 at 10:59 p.m. EDT. Wednesday's estimated jackpot is $90 million annuity, or $53.8 million one time cash-value payment. The Powerball winning numbers are drawn live Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 10:59 p.m. EDT 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, and another $1 for the Power Play option which could instantly multiply your prize winnings.
