One player who bought a ticket in New York managed to match all five white-ball numbers, winning $1 million. However, since that player opted against picking the Power Play option, the winnings will stay at $1 million and won't be increased to $2 million.
There were 554,229 winners in total who won at least $4 each. There were 15,897 winners in Michigan alone. Apart from that, three Michigan players won $200 each, which also happens to be the largest amount of individual prize money won in the state.
If all of that has warmed you up to the game and you've decided that you'd like to try your hand at Jackpot Powerball yourself, the good news is that it is available in 44 states, including Puerto Rico, Washington DC, and the Virgin Islands. The players have to choose five white-ball numbers (from 1 to 69) and one red-ball number (from 1 to 26). Each ticket costs $2.
The odds of winning the grand prize are one in 292 million.
As for the winning strategy, there doesn't seem to be a universal approach. Some players just pick random numbers, while others try to go for numbers with emotional significance, such as birth dates and anniversary dates. Still, the majority of jackpots were won by using computer-generated numbers, so this is a useful piece of information to keep in mind.
