Powerball Jackpot Worth $178 Million on Wednesday
Last Saturday night there were no winners from the US Powerball draw and the prize fund has rolled over once again to create a massive jackpot of $178 million on Wednesday.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 1, 3, 13, 25, 38 and the Powerball was 17. There were five players, in California, Florida, Illinois and Minnesota, that matched the five numbers to win $1 million each. In total there were 627,021 winning players that shared prizes totalling $8,133,002.
Players of the Powerball lottery need to match at least the Powerball in order to win a prize. Without matching the Powerball, players need to match at least three of the main regular number to win a prize. Each entry to the Powerball costs $2 and players can pay an extra $1 to use the Power Play option.
