The winning numbers in last night’s Powerball lottery were 13, 15, 17, 45 and 63, and the PowerBall was 13. The jackpot was an estimated $158 million, but did anyone win the grand prize?
No one won the jackpot, so the estimated jackpot for the next draw is $168 million with a cash option of $131.5 million.
Last night, however, a player who bought his ticket in Missouri matched five numbers and won $1 million. Ten players matched four numbers and the PowerBall and won $50,000, while two of these winners played with the Power Play 2X and won $100,000.
More than 1,000 players won $100 by matching either four numbers or three numbers and the PowerBall, and more than 400 of these winners doubled their prizes to $200 using PowerPlay.
Nearly 33,000 players won $7 by matching either three balls or two balls and the PowerBall, and nearly 10,000 of these winners won $14 through Power Play.
Finally, more than 400,000 players won $4 by combining either one ball and the PowerBall or just the PowerBall. About 124,000 of these winners doubled their prizes to $8 through Power Play.
The next draw will take place on November 15 when the jackpot is estimated at $168 million.
To enter the next draw, buy a ticket for $2 per game and choose five numbers from 1 to 69 for the white balls and then a number from 1 to 26 for the red PowerBall. Choose the numbers on a ticket or let the lottery terminal pick your numbers randomly.
Players win a prize by playing any of the 9 chances to win from $4 to the jackpot, and the Powerball jackpot will grow until it is won. For an additional $1 per game, the Power Play feature can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times.
The Powerball Lottery is played in 45 states, Washington DC, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 22:59 ET.
Players can purchase tickets up to one or two hours before the draw, depending on the sales court.
Powerball encourages its players to play responsibly and says: “Never spend more than you can afford on a lottery product. Please remember, it’s just a game.”
The Multi-State Lottery Association encourages “all lottery players to play responsibly” and has provided a number of helpful resources for those who may have a gambling problem.
