Powerball Rolls Saturday Night

Jan. 20, 2014 – Nobody was able to match all six winning numbers in Saturday’s Powerball drawing, so the jackpot rolled over again, reaching an estimated $131 million ahead of Wednesday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers drawn Saturday were 13, 14, 19, 31, 38 and the red Powerball was 25.  Saturday was the last drawing before Power Play, the optional multiplier for non-jackpot prizes, returns to a drawn number.

While there were no jackpot winners, five players did match the first five numbers drawn.  Four of those players scored themselves $1 million second prizes, while the fifth player, from Colorado, won a $2 million second prize because they added the Power Play multiplier to their ticket.

The other four winning tickets were sold in Connecticut, Illinois, Washington and California.  Because California pays out lottery prizes on a pari-mutuel basis – where the number of players affects prize amounts – the second-prize winner there will actually receive a prize worth more than $3.1 million.

Another 30 players won Powerball’s third prize Saturday night after matching four white numbers and the red Powerball.  Three of those players added the Power Play option to their tickets, which automatically multiplied their $10,000 third prizes to $40,000.

Beginning Wednesday, those third prizes with Power Play could be worth as little as $20,000 and as much as $50,000, depending on the multiplier drawn.

Overall, more than 560,000 Powerball players were winners in Saturday night’s drawing, collectively raking in just less than $10 million in prize money.

The $131 million jackpot up for grabs Wednesday night carries with it an estimated $73.8 million cash value.  Don’t forget to pick up your tickets before sales close ahead of Wednesday’s drawing, and remember you can save those tickets into your LotteryHUB app, and we’ll send you an email if it looks like you’ve won.
