Powerball Jackpot Worth $159 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 $159 million jackpot up for grabs.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were 25, 28, 48, 57, 59 and the Powerball was 16. There were two players, one in California and the other in New York, that matched the five main numbers to win $1 million each. In total there were 495,649 winning players that shared prizes totalling $5,476,529.
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 payouts, for instance the prize for matching the five main numbers doubles to $2 million.
