      Just over a month after the Powerball lottery created three mega-millionaires with a gigantic $448.4 million jackpot, the multi-state game is right back in the super-jackpot range with a massive $317 million grand prize up for grabs on Saturday.

      The new high-water mark of $317 million for the current Powerball jackpot was achieved after no winning tickets were sold for Wednesday night's $248.3 million grand prize.

      The lump-sum cash payout value of Saturday's Powerball jackpot is $176.3 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.  For example, the original estimate for Wednesday's drawing was $245 million, but by the time all the proceeds were counted just before draw-time, the jackpot had swelled to $248.3 million.

      The mammoth prize is the result of 10 consecutive draws without a winner.  The run-up started as a $40 million prize on August 10, 2013.

      The winning numbers for Wed., Sept. 11, 2013 were 11, 19, 33, 42, and 52, with Powerball number 33.

      Even though nobody won the jackpot Wednesday, 6 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from Georgia, 1 from Indiana, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from Nebraska, 1 from New York, and 1 from Pennsylvania.

      Only one of the second-prize winners purchased the Power Play option — the ticket sold in Pennsylvania.  Because that ticket was purchased with the Power Play option, their second-prize win is automatically doubled to $2 million.

      Power Play is not available in California, because the fixed nature of the prize increase offered in Power Play is not compatible with California's pari-mutuel payouts.  By law, California awards all prizes on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning the prizes will change each drawing based on the number of tickets sold and the number of tickets that won at each prize level.

      56 tickets matched four white numbers plus the Powerball and won $10,000. Of those tickets, 12 were purchased with the Power Play option, increasing the prize to $40,000, and 3 of the tickets were sold in California, where the prize was worth $20,538 this drawing.

      Following the Wednesday drawing, the Powerball annuity jackpot estimate was raised $68.7 million from its previous amount of $248.3 million. The cash value was raised by $38.2 million from its previous amount of $138.1 million.

      The next Powerball drawing will take place Saturday night 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 43 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  Drawings are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Time.  Tickets cost $2 each.

      A 44th Powerball state will be added some time in the next year, as the state of Wyoming has approved a new state lottery with the intention of joining Powerball and other multi-state games.  (See Wyoming officially becomes 44th state with a lotteryLottery Post, Mar. 14, 2013.)

      Powerball lottery results are published within minutes of the drawing at USA Mega (www.usamega.com).  The USA Mega Web site provides lottery players in-depth information about the United States's two biggest multi-state lottery games, Mega Millions and Powerball.

      Top 25 United States lottery jackpots of all time

      Saturday's Powerball jackpot currently stands as the 17th-largest lottery jackpot of all time in the United States.  That position may rise before the drawing Saturday night, as lotteries are typically conservative in their initial estimates, and brisk sales may push the jackpot estimate higher by draw time.

      Top 25 cash value jackpots

      Since many lottery winners collect their winnings in cash, the lump-sum payout is an important measure of what a winning ticket could be worth.

      Looking at the cash value, the upcoming Powerball jackpot is even better than the annuity, ranking as the 16th-largest cash value in U.S. history.

                I wonder how much of the $15 actually goes to the jackpot, and how much goes eleswhere, administration of the game, employees of the MUSL.  Anyone know of a source to find this out?

                      Hey Artist, according the website I saw this on, they say it's the same house in the same location. Wow right? So many properties in the country that need updating but it cost so much money. Ya know?

                      Look at this sweet conversion. From a small Cape Cod to a Craftsman:

                            Clearly we're all suffering from a bad case of big JP fatigue here.

                             

                            Because I'm such a team player, I'll consent to win this one so the rest of you can get some rest and be ready to go all out next time. I"m just considerate like that. Stretch
