US Powerball Jackpot Grows to $225 Million for Wednesday Draw
Saturday’s US Powerball draw didn’t produce any jackpot winners and the prize fund has rolled over once again to create a jackpot worth an impressive $225 million on Wednesday.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 22, 23, 30, 37, 39 and the Powerball was 16. There were five players, in New York and Georgia, which matched the five regular numbers to win $1 million each. Overall there were 758,379 winning players that shared prizes worth $7,564,797.
Powerball players just need to match the Powerball number in order to win a prize. Without matching the Powerball it is necessary to match three of the regular numbers to win a prize. Each entrance to the Powerball costs $2 and using the Power Play option will cost an extra $1. Using Power Play can increase prize payouts considerably, for instance a $1 million prize is doubled.
