Congratulations to the latest Powerball jackpot winner from Virginia! The Powerball winning numbers for Feb. 6, 2013, were drawn at 10:59 p.m. Wednesday's Powerball results are 5, 27, 36, 38, 41, and the red Powerball number is 12, according to the Powerball.com website.
The jackpot amount was originally set at $208 million, but increased as the night wore on until it reached a whopping $217.2 million annuity, or about $135 million in cash.
There was also one Match 5 + 0 Power Play winner for last night's drawing. A Rhode Island Powerball winner matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for what is normally a $1 million prize. Fortunately, the Rhode Island lottery winner purchased a Power Play ticket for an extra dollar which doubled the prize winnings to $2 million.
Six additional second-tier Powerball winners also matched five out of six white Powerball numbers for $1 million each. Sadly, they didn't buy Power Play tickets and will be receiving checks for only $1 million. The tickets were sold in Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, and two tickets in New York for the Wednesday, Feb. 6 drawing.
