Powerball lottery jackpot raised to $220 million

PowerballPowerball: Powerball lottery jackpot raised to $220 million

The Powerball jackpot continues to jump higher, as lines at lottery machines are starting to grow.

No one hit the jackpot Saturday, but 929,494 players across the nation won a total of more than $10.1 million in prizes in "America's Game".

Because no one correctly matched all six numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing the jackpot will grow to an estimated $220 million.

The cash option for the Wednesday, April 12th drawing will be an estimated $101 million.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 4, 23, 35, 43, 44, and the Powerball was 35. The Power Play multiplier was 3.

Eleven players correctly matched the 5 white numbers and won $200,000. Their winning tickets were purchased in Arizona (2), Colorado (1), Delaware (1), Louisiana (1), Minnesota (1), Missouri (1), New Mexico (1), Pennsylvania (1), and Wisconsin (2). Three additional lucky players in Indiana, South Carolina, and West Virginia 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-seven players matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000. Eleven 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 134,000 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 $40.6 million in tickets between Wednesday and Saturday night. The lotteries sold more than $2.2 billion in Powerball tickets in calendar year 2005. That translates into more than $660 million for worthwhile state projects.

                            I'm screamin that Muffin... I think that 220 million is a very nice round number... we could be good with that... of course if it wants to take another week to get bigger, that's fine, as long as we're already holding the winning ticket right now.

                            Dance  It feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeels Good Dance  I knew that it would nooooooow White Bounce
