US Powerball Saturday Results
The Powerball, one of the largest lotteries in the world, is keeping its hold on 1st place in theBig. As there were no jackpot winners in last night’s draw, the lottery rolled over for the 14th time bringing the sum to an amazing $305 million for the upcoming draw this Wednesday, August 15th.
There happen to be quite a few excited secondary prize winners from Saturday night, although not successful in guessing all of the winning Powerball numbers: 4, 13, 39, 46, 51 and Powerball 1, some were very close! Five players, matching all five numbers, each took home $1 million.
An additional 66 players, matching four numbers + the Powerball number, each pocketed $10,000, four of whom chose the Power Play option which quadrupled their prize bringing it to $40,000! The Power Play option is a fixed multiplier that multiplies winnings by 2-4 times when players select this option on the play form.
The biweekly American lottery is held every Wednesday and Saturday and offers its players some of the greatest jackpots in the world. The Powerball is approaching its highest jackpot ever which was $365 million, in February 2006, shared by eight people. Lotto players choose five numbers from a number range of 1-59 and an additional number, called the Powerball, from a different guess range of 1-35.
