Powerball Jackpot Grows to $13 Million

PowerballPowerball: Powerball Jackpot Grows to $13 Million

There were no Powerball jackpot winners Saturday but 344,531 players across the nation won a total of more than $2.5 million in prizes in America's Game.

Because no one correctly matched all six numbers in Saturday's drawing the jackpot will grow to an estimated $13 million.

The cash option for the Wednesday, February 11 drawing will be an estimated $7.3 million.

The numbers drawn were: 31, 34, 35, 39, 46, and the Powerball was 3. The Power Play multiplier was 2.

Six players correctly matched the 5 white numbers and won $100,000. The tickets were sold in Indiana. Minnesota, Missouri (3), and Nebraska. The winning Indiana player purchased the Power Play option. By spending the extra dollar that player multiplied their prize by 2 for a total win of $200,000.

Twenty-nine players matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won $5,000. Four of those players purchased the Power Play option, giving them a total win of $10,000.

More than 46,000 winning Powerball players multiplied their prize by 2 Saturday. They were able to do that by purchasing the Power Play option for one dollar. With Power Play you can multiply your winnings, 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 12.3 million tickets between Thursday and Saturday night.

The lotteries sold more than $2 billion in Powerball tickets in 2003. That translates into more than $600 million for worthwhile state projects.
