10 Million Winners Since Last Powerball Jackpot
May 18, 2013 – As the drawing approaches for Powerball’s record $600 million jackpot, it’s important to remember that grand prize winners aren’t the only people striking it rich, even though they’re luckier than the competition.
Since the last jackpot, there have actually been more than 10 million winners with Powerball!
According to Powerball’s records, 10,724,624 lucky players have won a combined $154,186,898 in secondary prizes, which start from $4 and go as high as $1 million.
With the added Power Play option, which players can add to their tickets for an extra $1, secondary prize amounts can be doubled.
While a $4 prize may not be much, it’s always exciting to have a winner, so why not try your luck?
You may not win the jackpot, but you still have a chance to be a big winner. Since the last jackpot, 87 people have won $1 million, and 11 people added Power Play to their tickets and won $2 million.
So don’t forget, the jackpot isn’t the only money to be won with Powerball.
Ticket sales for tonight’s drawing continue up to an hour before the drawing, so in the next four hours, grab a ticket and you might join millions of other winners nationwide.
And if you don’t win any cash tonight, keep in mind that your $2 is helping someone in your state who needs it – I’d call that a win too.
