This time, no one managed to guess all five numbers correctly, so this Jackpot Powerball concludes with no grand prize winners. Though the current $110 million jackpot remains unclaimed, the funds will be moved to the next drawing, where players will be presented with the chance of winning $127 million.
The next Jackpot Powerball drawing will take place on Wednesday August 24th.
The winning numbers were the following: 3, 6, 21, 60, 68. Red Powerball Number: 24. Power Play Number: 2.
Let's briefly look over some statistics for the drawing that took place on August 17th. In Massachusetts, someone purchased a ticket that matched all five white balls, with a payout of $1 million. If the same player had chosen the Power Play option, the winnings would essentially have been doubled.
There were over 600,000 winners in total, and they managed to win at least $4 each. There were over 17,000 winners in Michigan alone. This part of the state can be considered quite lucky in this drawing, since six players managed to win $200, which is the high end of the minor payouts.
If you're interested in playing Jackpot Powerball, the next drawing will take place on August 24th. You have the option of playing this game in 44 different states, including the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Washington DC.
Players have to choose five white-ball numbers ranging from 1 to 69, and one red-ball number ranging from 1 to 26. Each ticket costs $2.
As for the optimal strategy, that depends on the individual. Some people simply choose the numbers that mean a lot to them, and some just pick them randomly. However, it is recommended that you let the computer pick the numbers for you if you have that option, since most of the winning combinations were selected this way.
