Jackpot Powerball is pretty intense right now, and that's due to the fact that the August 27th drawing came to a close without anyone winning the grand Jackpot Powerball prize. Currently, the jackpot is at $142 million, and it is still waiting to be claimed by a lucky player who's willing to take a shot at hitting it big.
The next Jackpot Powerball drawing will be held on Wednesday, 31st August. The players will be competing for a jackpot worth a whopping $154 million, or $107 million in cash.
These are the latest winning numbers: 4, 32, 48, 49, 63. Red Powerball number: 20. Power Play number: 2.
Now for some interesting statistics. Not only were there no grand jackpot winners, but there were also no million dollar winners at all this time. Looking at the total number of participants, there were 648,744 winners (who managed to win at least $4 each), and 19,057 winners in Michigan alone.
Michigan also saw five winners claiming $200 each. Curiously, this was the largest sum won by a single ticket entry in the entire state.
Still, those numbers are surely enough to motivate you to try playing Jackpot Powerball yourself. If the game sounds appealing to you, you'll be pleased to know that you have the option of playing it in all 44 states, including Washington, DC, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
Every ticket costs $2, and the players are tasked with having to pick a six-number combination consisting of five white-ball numbers and one red-ball number. The white numbers range from 1 to 69, and the red numbers from 1 to 26.
Jackpot Powerball is enjoyed by millions of players across the country, and you are very much invited to jump on board if you fancy giving it a go!
