Once again, no one was lucky enough to claim the grand prize, so the money is rolling over to the next round, which will be worth $155 million with a cash option of $92.4 million.
Here is the latest set of winning numbers: 13, 25, 44, 54, 67. Red Powerball Power Number: 5. Power Play Number: 3
As usual, let's take a look at the statistics for this drawing. Though no one managed to take down the jackpot, two players matched all five white-ball numbers, winning $1 million each. These two jackpot-winning tickets were sold in Texas and Minnesota. However, since none of those two players picked the Power Play option, the winnings will remain at $1 million per player and will not be increased to $2 million.
There were 732,834 winners in total who won at least $4 each, with 21,544 of them residing in Michigan. Six players from Michigan won $300 in the drawing, which also happens to be the largest individual prize won in the state.
If this has got you excited to try the game yourself, the great news is that Jackpot Powerball is offered in 44 states, including Washington DC, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. 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.
Your odds of taking down the grand prize are one in 292 million.
The community of Jackpot Powerball players doesn't seem to agree on any particular strategy, so it's up to you whether you want to let the computer pick the numbers for you or if you want to do this yourself. However, do bear in mind that 75% of jackpot-winning tickets contained randomly generated numbers, so the former option is definitely preferable.
You can tune in to watch the jackpot drawings live or check the results online.
Good luck!
