Last night’s drawing was pretty exciting due to the fact that a staggering $304 million jackpot was at stake. There was also a one-time cash payout option amounting to $184.8 million.
In case you missed it, the winning numbers for the Feb. 23 Powerball drawing are shown below:
- The White Powerball Numbers are 4-6-14-20-32.
- The Red Powerball Number is 13.
- The Power Play Number is 2x.
Unfortunately, no one won the jackpot prize. No ticket holder was also able to match all five white numbers and the Power Play option. So nobody got the chance to bring home $2 million. Even the Match 5 prize worth $1 million was not won.
While this is a sad thing for the hundreds and thousands who bought tickets for Saturday’s draw, it’s actually a positive thing for those who are planning to join the lottery next Wednesday. The new jackpot is a whopping $322 million while the cash option is already playing at $196.1 million.
Powerball is available in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Each ticket costs $2 and players get to choose five white numbers from 1 to 69 and one red ball from 1 to 26. For an additional $1 per play, the Power Play feature multiplies non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 times.
