Since there were no winners in the recent Jackpot Powerball drawing, the jackpot will be transferred to the next one. This means that the next drawing will be worth $236 million, with a cash option of $156.2 million.
Without any further ado, here are the latest winning numbers: 21, 31, 50, 51, 69. Red Powerball Power number: 8. Power Play number: 3.
Since no one managed to match all five white-ball numbers, there were no $1 million winners this time around. There were 879,234 winners in total who managed to win at least $4 each. There were 27,553 winners in the state of Michigan alone. The highest amount of money won in the state was $300, and five winning tickets of this amount were sold.
If all of this has caught your attention and you'd like to try your hand at the game, you'll be delighted to know that you can play Jackpot Powerball in 44 states, including Puerto Rico, Washington DC, and the Virgin Islands.
Players are tasked with having to select five white-ball numbers (with available numbers ranging from 1 to 69) and one red-ball number (with available numbers ranging from 1 to 26). Each ticket costs $2.
When it comes to choosing a winning strategy, some players choose to go with something that is close to their heart, such as anniversary dates or birth dates, while others just pick them without a significant meaning in mind. However, research has shown that the numbers that are randomly generated by a computer have a higher chance of winning, since the majority of the jackpots were won this way.
