Last week’s Powerball draw had a massive jackpot worth $191 million, and an estimated cash value of $115.5 million. Unfortunately (or fortunately), nobody won the grand prize and so last night’s draw had a massive $204 million jackpot and a cash value worth $124.2 million.
The winning combinations for the Feb. 6 draw are found below:
- The White Powerball Numbers are 5-13-28-38-63.
- The Red Powerball Number is 21.
- The Power Play Number is 5x.
No one matched the Powerball Winning Numbers and Power Play. However, two ticket holders in North Carolina and California managed to match the five white numbers. Hence, each of them won $1 million. Interestingly, the ticket bought in North Carolina also won the Power Play option, so the holder is getting an extra $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. However, the 10x multiplier is only available when the jackpot annuity is $150 million or less. It’s also important to note that the multiplier is not applicable to a jackpot prize.
Getting the five white balls right with the Power Play option always rewards players with $2 million. Without the Power Play option, the prize is $1 million.
According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, players have a better chance of hitting the jackpot prize when they let the machine or computer pick their numbers at random. Apparently, it has been found out that around 75 percent of winning tickets have numbers that were chosen by the lottery computer.
The next Powerball draw is set to happen on Saturday, Feb. 9, at 10:59 p.m. EST. The new jackpot is $224 million with a cash value of $136.4 million.
