Saturday night’s Powerball draw amassed an estimated $224 million jackpot and a one-time cash payout worth $146.4 million. The large grand prize was all thanks to the fact that no one won during the Feb. 6 draw last Wednesday.
The winning combinations for the Feb. 6 drawing are found below:
- The White Powerball Numbers were 5-13-28-38-63.
- The Red Powerball Number was 21.
- The Power Play Number was 5x.
As mentioned earlier, no one got lucky and won the massive jackpot. Nevertheless, two ticket holders became instant millionaires after last Wednesday’s drawing.
Two players in North Carolina and California got all five white numbers right, so they won $1 million each. However, the winning ticket bought in North Carolina also played the Power Play option, so the owner won a total of $2 million.
Four tickets sold in Michigan won $500, which is the largest prize ever won in the state. Interestingly, 656,280 tickets sold won at least $4.
For this Saturday’s drawing, the Powerball Winning Numbers are as follows:
- The White Powerball Numbers are 1-2-3-7-39.
- The Red Powerball Number is 25.
- The Power Play Number is 3x.
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.
