Powerball Rolls Past $200 Million
Feb. 3, 2014 – Nobody matched all six winning Powerball numbers drawn Saturday night, so the jackpot prize grew to an estimated $215 million ahead of Wednesday night’s drawing.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 5, 12, 15, 27, 38 and the red Powerball was 7. Saturday’s Power Play multiplier was 2x, so tickets winning third prizes or less with the Power Play option added will double in value.
Although nobody hit the jackpot Saturday night, there were a handful of new millionaires made in the drawing, including two new multi-millionaires.
Two tickets sold in Florida and single tickets sold in Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia matched the first five numbers drawn to win Powerball’s regular, $1 million second prize.
Two more players, from New York and Ohio, also matched all five white numbers drawn. Those two winners added Power Play to their tickets, so they’ll take home $2 million second prizes.
Saturday’s drawing also handed out an impressive number of third prizes. 59 Powerball players were able to match the Powerball and four of the white numbers to score the game’s third prize.
Eight of those players chose to add the Power Play option to their tickets for an extra $1, so their third prizes multiply from $10,000 to $20,000.
Overall, there were nearly 860,000 winners who scored $14.56 million in non-jackpot prize money.
Wednesday’s estimated $215 million carries a cash value of about $124 million. The drawing will be held at 11 p.m. EST, and as always you can catch the drawing live, right on your smartphone, with the free LotteryHUB app for iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
