It’s that time of the week again for Powerball patrons to tune in to the latest drawing of one of America’s favorite lotteries. The new jackpot is a little more than a quarter of a billion, and it could be yours tonight!
There was no big winner following the Aug. 14 draw last week, so no one brought home the $258 million prize. But that’s a good thing because Powerball is cumulative, so we are getting a much bigger prize this week.
This Wednesday, one ticket holder’s life is about to change once the balls are drawn and the Powerball Winning Numbers are announced. The new jackpot is a life-changing $274 million, with the cash option of $197.7 million.
Catch the live drawing of Powerball at 11 p.m. ET. Should you miss it, just check back on this page because we are updating it with the winning combination right after the draw.
UPDATE: The Winning Powerball Numbers are found below.
- The White Powerball Numbers are 35-36-51-55-61.
- The Red Powerball is 26.
- The Power Play is 2x.
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.
