It’s been a big week for the US lottery jackpots, and that is set to continue. Tuesday evening one lucky Californian scooped a Mega Millions jackpot worth $120 million and then last night’s Powerball jackpot was worth another $110 million!
So was the Powerball jackpot also won? The drawing went off without a hitch and the winning numbers are 24 – 33 – 36 – 48 – 56; Powerball 06.
The news is that no one won last night’s Powerball jackpot and so it’s another big rollover for the big US lottery. Now that the Mega Millions jackpot has been won, this opens up the way for the Powerball jackpot to now soar, and ticket sales are likely to be through the roof for the weekend draw.
There were plenty of winners in last night’s Powerball drawing, including Match 5 winners from Missouri, New York, Tennessee and Washington. In all, $7.6 million will be paid out in non-jackpot prizes to over half a million Powerball players.
Congratulations to all of last night’s winners, and there were plenty of them. However, the jackpot still has not found a winner, which means that Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is the biggest currently available anywhere in the world and is estimated to be worth a massive $125 million!
