October 17, 2016 00:09
Since no one managed to win the $122 million grand prize, Jackpot Powerball is now at $136 million, with a cash option of $90.5 million.

Here are the latest winning numbers: 23, 49, 57, 64, 67. Red Powerball Power Number: 20. Power Play Number: 2.

As usual, it's time to go over some statistics. Though not a single player managed to win the grand prize, one of them managed to match all five white-ball numbers. The same player also played the Power Play option, which effectively increased their winnings to $2 million. That particular ticket was sold in Puerto Rico. Congratulations!

There were 589,986 winners in total who managed to win at least $4 each. There were 17,162 winners in Michigan alone. A player from Michigan managed to match four white-ball numbers, as well as the red-ball number, netting them a respectable $50,000. That was also the largest amount of individually won prize money in the state.

If all of that has caught your interest and made you want to try your hand at the game, the great news is that you can play Jackpot Powerball in 44 states, including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington DC. Players are tasked with having to select five white-ball numbers (ranging from 1 to 69) and one red-ball number (ranging from 1 to 26). Each ticket costs $2.

Currently, there is no strategy that is universally agreed upon. Typically, players tend to choose a set of numbers that has some kind of emotional connotation to them, such as birth dates or anniversary dates. However, it has been proven that most of the jackpot winners had the numbers randomly generated by a computer, so this can be a slight advantage.
