Powerball Jackpot Begins Climbing
Nov. 21, 2013 – Nobody won the $40 million starting jackpot in last night’s Powerball drawing, so the prize rolled over for the first time since a single ticket in New York matched all six numbers Saturday for a $130.3 million jackpot.
The winning numbers in Wednesday night’s drawing were 4, 18, 23, 32, 45 and the red Powerball was 7.
While nobody scored the $40 million jackpot Wednesday, four lucky players matched all five white balls to win second prizes. Those tickets were sold in California, Florida, Nebraska and Ohio.
The Florida winner chose to add the Powerplay option to their ticket for an extra $1, which means that lucky ticket is worth $2 million, rather than the normal $1 million second prize.
Because California plays the lottery on a pari-mutuel basis, payouts for lottery prizes can vary. Wednesday’s winning California ticket is worth a whopping $3,213,436!
A total of 452,105 Powerball players collectively won more than $8.3 million Wednesday night, demonstrating that there’s no need to wait for the jackpot to reach dizzying heights, you can win big right after it resets.
Saturday’s jackpot is worth $50 million, and carries a cash value of $28.2 million. Don’t miss out on the action Saturday, and remember to pick up your Powerball tickets before sales close ahead of the drawing.
