Officials with the South Carolina Education Lottery say a $400 million winning ticket in the latest Powerball drawing was sold in Lexington in central South Carolina.
The latest Powerball jackpot is estimated at $400 million, and it’s considered the nation’s fifth-largest ever. Here are some things to keep in mind ahead of Wednesday night’s drawing.
Lottery officials have announced on the Powerball website that no ticket has matched all Saturday’s numbers drawn for that game’s giant jackpot.
Three winning tickets in two states matched all the numbers for a $448.4 million Powerball jackpot, including one sold in a supermarket in a New Jersey coastal community hit hard by Superstorm Sandy last year.
The $245 million jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing would fetch a single winner a lump-sum payment after taxes of about $244.7 million.
No one hit the Powerball jackpot this weekend, so the money will roll over and create a roughly $400 million prize for Wednesday’s drawing.
The winner of last month’s $590 million Powerball jackpot is an 84-year-old woman from Zephyrhills, Fla.
It’s all about the odds, and one lone ticket in Florida has beaten them all by matching each of the numbers drawn for the highest Powerball jackpot in history at an estimated $590.5 million, lottery officials said Sunday.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lottery officials estimate the Powerball jackpot is at $590.5M. Lottery officials say the winning numbers in the drawing are 22, 10, 13, 14, 52 and Powerball 11. (© Copyright 2012 […]
Powerball officials say the jackpot has climbed to an estimated $600 million, making it the largest prize in the game’s history and the world’s second largest lottery prize.
