Powerball lottery jackpot powered-up to $100 million

PowerballPowerball: Powerball lottery jackpot powered-up to $100 million

Even though the grand prize was not hit in the Wednesday evening Powerball drawing, the game paid off big in multiple ways.

There were three tickets that won $600,000 with the Power Play option in North Carolina (1), North Dakota (1), and South Carolina (1).  In addition, two other lucky tickets won $200,000 for matching 5 white ball numbers in the states of North Carolina (1), and Nebraska (1).

The jackpot for the Saturday, June 17th drawing will be $100 million with the cash option at $45.6 million.

The numbers drawn Wednesday evening were 4, 14, 15, 40, 48, and the Powerball was 12. The Power Play multiplier was 3.

Twenty-four tickets matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000. Five additional players of that prize level wisely purchased the Power Play and had their prize multiplied by 3 for a $30,000 cash win.

A total of 538,248 players across the nation won more than $5.8 million in prizes playing "America's Game".

More than 97,000 winning Powerball players multiplied their prize by 3 Wednesday. They were able to do that by purchasing the Power Play option for $1. With Power Play you multiply your Powerball winnings from 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 $22.6 million in tickets between Sunday and Wednesday night.

The lotteries have sold approximately $2.6 billion in Powerball tickets so far in fiscal year 2006. That translates into approximately $750 million for worthwhile state projects.

      The next winner of PB in TN will be in memphis... Mark my words!  Whether they claim it or not...  We'll see.  LOL.  I wish I could get some tickets.  I'm in Mobile this summer for more classes (whoohoo).  I got a multi draw before I left last month but it runs out soon.  I might have my dad buy some for me and hold them until I come home later this month.  On the other hand...  I love playing in FL.  Seems like everything I go over I win something now. Good luck guys!  (Before you even say it I can't play online because I don't have a debit or credit card)

      How are you going to win if you don't play?

                I want it to roll over until it reaches the $400 Million dollar mark..White Bouncethat is of course if I don't win it.  It makes life a lot more interesting.  After I thank my father above for allowing me to have this opportunity I will then thank the lottery post network for giving me the knowledge to create my own system to win it.  Yeah my speech will go something like that.
