US Powerball Jackpot Reaches $127 Million for Wednesday Draw
On Saturday there were no jackpot winners in the US Powerball draw, as a result the jackpot has grown to a massive $127 million for Wednesday’s draw.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 9, 29, 31, 43, 50 and the Powerball was 18. The largest prize went to a player in Oklahoma who managed to match five numbers to win $1 million. In total $4,255,235 was won by 548,621 players.
Players of the Powerball can use the Powerplay option; it costs an extra $1 per line and can considerably increase the size of payouts. For instance, had the Oklahoma player purchased the Powerplay option then their prize would have doubled to $2 million.
Prizes in the Powerball are awarded for matching at least the Powerball or three regular numbers without the Powerball. Tickets are available from vendors across the United States and can also be purchased online.
