Powerball Jackpot Worth Estimated $80 Million for Wednesday Draw
Once again Saturday’s draw produced no winners of the Powerball jackpot, this means that it has rolled over and this Wednesday’s jackpot is estimated to be worth $80 million. If anyone is lucky enough to hit the jackpot and chooses the cash option then they will receive a massive $48 million.While the jackpot remains untouched, four players did match five numbers to win $1 million each. A total of 427,031 players matched enough numbers to win a prize and collect an impressive combined total of $6,685,239.
Prizes are awarded to any player that matches the Powerball. If the Powerball isn’t matched then it is necessary to match at least three regular numbers to win a prize.
The jackpot is won by matching all five numbers and the Powerball.
There is also the option to use Power Play, a special feature to increase the prize amount. It costs an extra $1 to use but will significantly increase the prizes. For instance, the Match 5+0 prize increases to $2 million from $1 million.
Powerball tickets can be bought in vendors across 43 states, Washington D.C. and the US Virgin Islands. There are also many websites where it is possible to purchase tickets for the draw.
