$200 MILLION: Powerball lottery jackpot surges

PowerballPowerball: $200 MILLION: Powerball lottery jackpot surges

Rating:

By Todd Northrop

There was no jackpot winner in the Saturday night drawing of the multi-state Powerball lottery game, causing the grand prize to increase to an estimated $200 million for Wednesday's drawing.

Saturday was the 11th consecutive drawing without a jackpot winner.  The jackpot run started August 18 as a $40 million jackpot.

The estimated cash value for the new jackpot is $128.5 million. After-tax cash and annuity prize amounts are reported state-by-state on the Jackpot Analysis page at USA Mega, a web site devoted to the Powerball and Mega Millions multi-state lottery games.

Players should note that jackpot amounts are conservative estimates provided by the lotteries, and are often somewhat higher by the time the drawing occurs.

Although there were no jackpot winners Saturday, 5 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from Illinois, 1 from Missouri, 1 from Nebraska, 1 from New York, and 1 from Texas.  None of the second-prize winners purchased the Power Play option. If they had, their second-prize win would have automatically doubled to $2 million.

34 tickets matched four white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000. Of those tickets, 4 were purchased with the Power Play option, increasing the prize to $40,000.

The Powerball winning numbers for Saturday, September 22, were 2, 16, 18, 40, and 42, with Powerball number 33.

Following the Saturday drawing, the Powerball annuity jackpot estimate was raised $26 million from its previous amount of $174 million. The cash value was raised by $18.5 million, from its previous amount of $110 million.

The next Powerball drawing will take place Wednesday evening at 10:59 pm Eastern Time.

When a Powerball ticket is purchased with the Power Play option for an extra $1 per ticket, any non-jackpot prize is increased according to a fixed prize schedule, which can be found on the Powerball Drawing Detail page at USA Mega, as well as on the Powerball Prize Payouts page at Lottery Post.

Powerball is now played in 42 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 pm Eastern Time. Tickets cost $2 each.

The Powerball winning numbers are published at USA Mega (www.usamega.com) minutes after the drawing takes place.
