The winning Powerball numbers in last night’s draw were 28, 31, 40, 41, 46, the Powerball was 4 and the Power Play 3X – but did anyone win the Powerball?
No one has won the jackpot, which was an estimated $228.7 million in last night’s draw, so the grand prize was carried over to Saturday, where it will be an estimated $243 million, with a cash value option of $189.4 million.
An Arizona player, however, matched all five numbers and won $1 million. Eleven players matched four numbers and the Powerball and won $50,000, and three of these players used the power play to multiply the prizes to $150,000.
In addition, 340 players won $100 by matching four numbers, and 86 of these winners tripled their prizes to $300 using the Powerplay. Just over a thousand players also won $100, but by comparing three numbers and the Powerball, with nearly 300 of these players using the Powerball to win $300.
More than 20,000 players who matched three numbers won $7, with more than 5,400 of those players winning $21 on the Powerplay. More than 17,000 additional players also won $7, but through the two number game and the Powerball, with nearly 5,000 of these winners using the Power Play to win $21.
Nearly 140,000 players matched with one number and the Powerball to win $4, with more than 37,000 of them winning $12 on the Power Play. Finally, more than 340,000 players won $4 with the Powerball alone, with more than 92,000 using the Power Play to triple their prize.
