Powerball Jackpot Worth $100 Million on Saturday
On Wednesday evening there were no jackpot winners from the US Powerball draw so once again the prize fund has rolled over and this Saturday there is a massive $100 million jackpot up for grabs.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were 5, 7, 19, 27, 28 and the Powerball was 20. There were two players, one in Illinois and the other in Rhode Island, that matched the five main numbers to win $1 million each. In total there were 401,452 winning players that shared prizes totalling $5,823,919.
In order to win a prize players just need to match the Powerball. Without the Powerball it is necessary to match at least three of the regular numbers to receive a prize. Using the Power Play option can significantly increase the value of prizes, for instance the players in Illinois and Rhode Island could have doubled their prizes to $2 million.
