Powerball Jackpot Grows 12/16

Dec 17, 15 Powerball Jackpot Grows 12/16

Dec. 17, 2015 – Nobody was able to match all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball drawing, so the jackpot prize rolled over again, reaching an estimated $202 million for Saturday night’s drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers were 9, 10, 32, 42, 55 and the Powerball was 6. The Power Play Multiplier drawn Wednesday was 2x, so winning tickets with the Power Play option added are worth twice their normal prize value.

While nobody was able to win the jackpot, one ticket sold in Michigan matched all five white numbers for a million dollars Wednesday night.

Twenty-two players matched four of the white balls and the Powerball to win third prizes Wednesday night, and three of those players won with Power Play.  The Powerplayer will receive a $20,000 prize while the other nineteen third prizewinners will receive the normal $10,000 prize.

Overall, more than 731 thousand Powerball players became winners Wednesday night, scoring more than $6.2 million in prize money.

The next drawing will be held Saturday night at 11 p.m., and the estimated $202 million annuity jackpot carries with it a $125.9 million cash value.
