Jan. 14, 2015 – My oh my!! What a run! Three incredibly lucky people have won the $1.6 BILLION Powerball jackpot! Those folks, from California, Florida and Tennessee are sure to be among the happiest people on this day!
The winning Powerball numbers were 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the Powerball was 10. The Power Play Multiplier drawn Wednesday was 2x, so winning tickets with the Power Play option added are worth two times their normal prize value.
In addition to the incredible jackpot win there were several tickets sold Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Virginia, Washington and West Virgina that matched all five white numbers for a million dollars each Wednesday night.
The players from Arizona, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Jersey, Texas and Tennessee chose the power play option to double their initial winnings to TWO million dollars!
Eight hundred and twenty-seven players matched four of the white balls and the Powerball to win third prizes Wednesday night, and one hundred and seven of those players won with Power Play. The Powerplayers will receive a $100,000 prize while the other seven hundred and fourteen third prizewinners will receive the normal $50,000 prize.
Overall, more than 26 million Powerball players became winners Wednesday night, scoring more than $273 million in prize money.
Wow, what an incredible game! Well folks, I’m looking forward to the next run. Hopefully this time we can get to 2 billion dollars!! Good luck and remember, you can’t win if you don’t play.
The next drawing will be held Saturday night at 11 p.m., and the estimated $40 million annuity jackpot carries with it a $24.8 million cash value.
