Dec. 2, 2013 – Nobody matched all six winning Powerball numbers in Saturday’s drawing, so the jackpot continued its climb, reaching $81 million ahead of Wednesday’s drawing.
The numbers drawn Saturday were 5, 26, 44, 45, 57 and the red Powerball was 29. More than 430,000 Powerball players matched one of nine winning combinations of those numbers, collectively winning almost $3 million in prize money.
There were no tickets sold for Saturday’s drawing that matched all five white balls drawn for the $1 million second prize.
Twelve Powerball players matched four of the white balls and the red Powerball to win third prizes. Ten of those prizes are worth $10,000, while two of the third-prize winners will receive $40,000 for adding the PowerPlay multiplier to their tickets.
Wednesday’s drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. EST, and the $81 million jackpot has a cash option of $45.5 million. Don’t forget to pick up your tickets before sales close Wednesday night – you can’t win if you don’t play.
