# \$185 MILLION: Huge Powerball lottery jackpot set for Wednesday

Powerball: \$185 MILLION: Huge Powerball lottery jackpot set for WednesdayRating:

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 \$185 million for Wednesday's drawing.

Saturday was the 11th consecutive Powerball drawing without a jackpot winner.  The jackpot run started October 6 as a \$40 million jackpot.

The estimated cash value for the new jackpot is \$123.7 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, 4 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a \$1,000,000 prize: 1 from New Jersey, 1 from New York, 1 from Tennessee, and 1 from Texas.

Of all the second-prize winners, only the ticket from Texas was purchased with the Power Play option for an extra \$1. Because they purchased the Power Play, that particular ticket is now worth \$2 million.

39 tickets matched four white numbers plus the Powerball and won \$10,000. Of those tickets, 7 were purchased with the Power Play option, increasing the prize to \$40,000.

The Powerball winning numbers for Saturday, November 10, were 32, 42, 50, 54, and 55, with Powerball number 32. (Because the Powerball number is selected from a different pool of numbers, it is entirely possible — and did actually happen this time — that the Powerball number is the same as one of the first five numbers.)

Following the Saturday drawing, the Powerball annuity jackpot estimate was raised \$17 million from its previous amount of \$168 million. The cash value was raised by \$14.9 million, from its previous amount of \$108.8 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.

I am overdue. For far too long I have gotten the 2 gifts in 1 treatment since my b-day falls on 25 December. I can handle \$185M (\$126M lump sum) as "payback"! Not feeling entitled nor am I getting caught up in jackpot hype as I am just as likely to buy an extra play at \$40M as I am at \$200M...it just depends on the state of greenbacks in my money clip.

Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!

The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

Step back everyone, this one is mine!

And the self-jinxing has started.

Too bad it was you mcginnin.

Think about it, how long has this site been up, how many have claimed a jackpot beforehand, and how many of those have won one?

Next we'll have the barage of those telling us how they're going to spend \$185 million that they haven't won yet.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

I'm testing my new self-jinxing theory, which essentially is like attracting good Karma in reverse.

My hypothesis is that by tapping in to the anti-energy, anti-world universe, I may be able to harness this reservoir of boundless life force,

to pull of a successful win for this Wednesdays Powerball drawing.

As with any great inventor or innovator, I'm sure there will be certain pitfalls and setbacks, but that's a risk I'm willing to assume.

By merely mentioning that "j" word, you have already "j'ed" yourself.

I'm just so sorry it had to happen to you so early in the day.
