Powerball Jackpot Exceeds $120 Million
The Powerball jackpot is continuing to grow and has now reached a massive $183 million with a cash option worth $112.5 million.
The jackpot size was announced by the Multi-State Lotto Association after no ticket sold for Saturday’s draw matched the winning numbers, 3, 8, 13 , 41, 56 and Powerball 16.
There were some winners from last weekend’s draw, tickets sold in Florida and Oregon matched five numbers but not the Powerball.
The holders of these tickets have won $1 million each. Meanwhile in New Jersey 51 people correctly picked four numbers and have won $100 each.
The last time the Powerball jackpot was won was on February 6th. The jackpot was won by a Fredericksburg, Va. Resident who bought the winning ticket at Richmond International Airport. The winner, Dave Honeywell, who works as a computer scientist for the Department of Defence, chose to receive his winnings as cash and collected a massive $136.4 million before taxes.
Since then there have been no wins greater than $1 million.
With the jackpot so large it has to be worth investing $1 in a ticket, so buy yours today and you could soon be America’s next multimillionaire.
