Feb. 16, 2014 – Nobody won the Powerball jackpot Saturday night, so the prize rolled over to become the fourth-largest ever in Powerball history. Ahead of Wednesday’s drawing, the jackpot sits at an estimated $400 million, the fourth-highest Powerball jackpot ever.
The winning numbers drawn Friday night were 2, 9, 14, 21, 23 and the red Powerball was 3. The Power Play number drawn Saturday was 3x, so third or lower prize winning tickets with the Power Play option added will be worth three times their normal value.
There were ten winners Saturday night who matched all five white numbers drawn. Nine of those winners scored Powerball’s $1 million second prize. Two million-dollar tickets were each sold in Florida and Michigan, and the other five winners are from Georgia, Iowa, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The tenth winner , from Texas, is now a multi-millionaire thanks to Power Play. That winner added the Power Play option to their ticket, so their second prize is automatically worth $2 million.
There were more than ten times as many third prize winners Saturday night. 108 players matched five numbers – four white numbers and the Powerball – to score Powerball’s third prize.
Sixteen of those third-prize winners added Power Play to their tickets and will receive $30,000 prizes. The other 92 third-prize winners will receive Powerball’s normal $10,000 third prize.
Wednesday night’s drawing for the fourth-highest Powerball jackpot ever will be held just before 11 p.m. EST. The estimated $400 million annuity jackpot carries with it a cash value of $227.8 million.
