Jackpot Rolls Over:
September 1, 2016 – No tickets matched all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, so the jackpot prize rolled over again, reaching an estimated $170 million for Saturday night’s drawing.
The winning Powerball numbers were: 5 – 10 – 24 – 56 – 61 Powerball: 12 Power Play: 2x
Thirteen tickets matched four of the five white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 Wednesday night. One of these tickets featured the Power Play option to multiply their prize by 2.
Wednesday night’s drawing produced 672,830 winning tickets worth more than $4.2 million in prizes.
The next drawing will be held Saturday night at 11 p.m. Eastern Time and features an estimated $170 million jackpot that will pay $118.1 million to any single winner choosing the cash value option. If there are multiple winners the prize will be split.
