Sept. 15, 2013 – Last night’s Powerball drawing did not produce a jackpot winner, and pushed the estimated jackpot up to $400 million ahead of Wednesday’s drawing – an $83 million jump in the jackpot’s value.
The numbers drawn last night were 1, 17, 25, 37, 44, and the red Powerball was 20.
Though nobody scored the $317 million jackpot prize last night, 11 lucky Powerball players managed to match five out of six numbers drawn, winning themselves $1 million second prizes.
Those 11 winning tickets were sold in California, Georgia, Idaho, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. New York and Pennsylvania each had two $1 million second-prize winners.
None of the top 11 winners last night added the PowerPlay option to their tickets, which for an extra $1 would have doubled their $1 million second prizes.
Six players who won third-tier prizes last night did remember to add PowerPlay to their tickets, which multiplies the normal $10,000 third prize to $40,000.
Along with those six PowerPlay players, 59 other people have $10,000 tickets after matching four white balls and last night’s Powerball.
In all, last night’s Powerball drawing paid out just under $21 million to more than 1.5 million players.
With the jackpot back at $400 million, you can be sure everyone’s going to want a shot at the big money. You have a few days, but don’t forget to buy your ticket before your state stops Powerball sales Wednesday night.
