Powerball lottery jackpot raised to $174 million

PowerballPowerball: Powerball lottery jackpot raised to $174 million

No one hit the Powerball lottery jackpot Saturday, but 800,964 players across the nation won a total of more than $7.6 million in prizes in "America's Game".

Because no one correctly matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing the jackpot will grow to an estimated $174 million.

The cash option for the Wednesday, April 5th drawing will be an estimated $80.4 million.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 1, 10, 23, 50, 55, and the Powerball was 29. The Power Play multiplier was 3.

Eight players correctly matched the 5 white numbers and won $200,000. Their winning tickets were purchased in Colorado (1), DC (1), Idaho (1), Missouri (1), Oklahoma (2), Pennsylvania (1), and Vermont (1). One additional lucky player in Pennsylvania who matched 5 also wisely purchased the Power Play option and multiplied the $200,000 prize by 3 for a total win of $600,000.

Thirty-eight players matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000. Ten additional winners at that prize level also purchased the Power Play option multiplying their winnings 3 times for a total of $30,000.

More than 130,000 winning Powerball players multiplied their prize by 3 Saturday. They were able to do that by purchasing the Power Play option for one dollar. With Power Play you multiply your Powerball winnings by 2-5 times, except for the jackpot. At the beginning of each drawing a wheel is spun to select that night's multiplier.

Players should carefully check their tickets after every draw. Even if there are no jackpot winners there are always tens of thousands of winners at other prize levels.

Players purchased more than $34.8 million in tickets between Wednesday and Saturday night. The lotteries sold more than $2 billion in Powerball tickets in FY05. That translates into more than $600 million for worthwhile state projects.
