PowerballPowerball: Powerball Jackpot Grows to $45 Million

The Labor Day holiday weekend will be full of picnics, parades, and Powerball.  There were no Powerball jackpot winners Wednesday but 356,490 players across the nation won a total of more than $2.3 million in prizes in America's Game.

Because no one correctly matched all six numbers in Wednesday's drawing the jackpot will grow to an estimated $45 million.

The cash option for the Saturday, September 4 drawing will be an estimated $24.4 million.

The numbers drawn were: 31, 33, 44, 45, 51 and the Powerball was 31. The Power Play multiplier was 4.

Eleven players matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won $5,000. Three of those players purchased the Power Play option, giving them a total win of $20,000.

There were no Match 5 winners in Wednesday night's draw.

More than 51,000 winning Powerball players multiplied their prize by 4 Wednesday. 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 12.6 million tickets between Sunday and Wednesday night.

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

    and it isn't looking like it will get hit anytime soon.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
