US Powerball Jackpot Grows to $171 Million for Wednesday Draw
Saturday’s US Powerball draw failed to produce any jackpot winners and as a result the prize fund has rolled over to create a jackpot worth $171 million on Wednesday.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 1, 6, 16, 37, 53 and the Powerball was 27. There was one player, in California, who managed to match five numbers and win a prize of $1 million. While overall there were 613,575 winning players that shared prizes worth $5,423,888.
In order to win a prize players need to match at least the Powerball. Without the Poweball it is necessary to match three of the regular numbers to win some money. Tickets for the Powerball cost $2 per line and the Powerplay options costs an additional $1.
Tickets can be bought from vendors across the United States and a number of websites.
