Since there was no grand-prize winner for the drawing held on November 12th, the jackpot is now worth $293 million, with a cash option of $185 million.
Here are the latest jackpot-winning numbers: 8, 17, 20, 27, 52. Red Powerball Number: 24. Power Play number: 2.
Even though no one managed to win the grand Jackpot Powerball prize, there were three players who won $1 million each. The jackpot-winning tickets were sold in New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania. Since none of those players decided to go with the Power Play option, the jackpots are worth $1 million each instead of $2 million.
903,794 participants in the drawing managed to win at least $4 each. There were 28,428 winners in Michigan alone. This time around, 11 tickets sold in Michigan made their holders $200 richer. The latter amount is also the highest prize won by any Michigan player.
If all of this has caught your interest, you’ll be delighted to know that Jackpot Powerball is offered in 44 states, including the Virgin Islands, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico. The players need to pick five white-ball numbers (ranging from 1 to 69) and one red-ball number (ranging from 1 to 26). Each ticket costs $2.
The players don't seem to have a universally agreed-upon strategy for playing the game. Some like to pick numbers that are close to their heart, such as birth dates or anniversary dates. Others, however, let the computer randomly generate the numbers, which is a strategy that's also backed by concrete statistics. 75% of the jackpots were won this way, so this strategy is definitely a good choice for those with a winning mentality.
