Although no one won the massive Powerball jackpot Saturday night, there was a total of 1,384,629 winners that scooped up $21,219,895 in prize money. According to the Chicago Tribune on Sunday, Feb. 16, the Powerball jackpot now stands at an estimated $400 million annuity, or $227.8 million in cold hard cash.
Congratulations to the Feb. 15 Powerball Winners!
Although there were no Powerball jackpot winners in Saturday's drawing, and only one $2 million Power Play winner from Texas, there were an additional nine (9) Match 5 + 0 Powerball winners. The $1 million Powerball winners matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, missing only the red Powerball number for the second-tier prize.
The $1 million Match 5 + 0 Powerball winners purchased their Powerball winning tickets from the Florida Lottery, Georgia Lottery, Iowa Lottery, Michigan Lottery, New York Lottery, Ohio Lottery and Pennsylvania Lottery commissions, with two $1 million winners from the same state. Had they spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option like the Texas lottery winner did, their prize winnings would have instantly doubled from $1 million to $2 million as well.
Additionally, there were one-hundred-eight (108) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each in the Feb. 15 drawing. Sixteen (16) of those Powerball winners bought the Power Play option for an extra dollar, which automatically increased their prizes to $30,000. Each winner matched four out of five Powerball winning numbers, AND the red Powerball number for the third-tier prize.
When is the Next Powerball Drawing?
The next Powerball drawing is scheduled for Feb. 19, 2014 at 10:59 p.m. EST. Wednesday's estimated jackpot is an amazing $400 million annuity, or $227.8 million for a one-time cash lump-sum payment. Both options are before taxes. 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.
The Powerball jackpot has now rolled over 15 times since Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2013 when Missouri Powerball winner Kevin Carlson scored the $71.5 million jackpot. How many Powerball tickets will you buy for the next drawing now that the jackpot has risen to the $400 million mark?
