Jackpot Powerball – winning numbers for October 1st 2016 drawing
October 03, 2016 00:02
There was no big winner this time around, which means that Jackpot Powerball is increasing in size. The next jackpot will be worth a whopping $80 million!

As for the latest winning numbers, they are: 2, 12, 50, 61, 64. Red Powerball number: 1. Power Play number: 2.

While it’s true that no one managed to win the grand prize, one player did match all five white numbers. As a result, that player is now $1 million richer!

Now for some interesting statistics. The ticket that won $1 million was purchased in Louisiana. As the lucky player decided not to go with the Power Play option, the winnings stay at the $1 million level (otherwise, that player would have received $2 million).

In total, 504,309 players won at least $4 each. There were 14,511 winners in Michigan alone. Four tickets sold in Michigan won the players $200 each – that is the largest amount of money won in the state.

If you're interested in playing Jackpot Powerball, the good news is that you have the option of doing so in 44 states, including the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, 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.

As for the best strategy, different people have different approaches. Some choose to go with a combination of numbers that represents something emotionally significant to them, such as a birth date or anniversary date. However, statistics reveal that it's actually best to have a computer randomly generate the numbers, since most of the jackpots were won this way.

In any case, you can watch the jackpot drawing as it happens live on the official stream, or you can check the results online. Good luck!
