Powerball Jackpot Leaps to $110 Million

PowerballPowerball: Powerball Jackpot Leaps to $110 Million

There were no Powerball jackpot winners Wednesday but 631,607 players across the nation won a total of more than $6.4 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 $110 million.

The cash option for the Saturday, September 25 drawing will be an estimated $60.3 million.

The numbers drawn were: 6, 14, 34, 37, 40 and the Powerball was 7. The Power Play multiplier was 5.

Nine players correctly matched the 5 white numbers and won $100,000. The tickets were sold in Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota (2), New Mexico, and Wisconsin.

Two additional winners of the Match 5 also purchased the Power Play option. They multiplied their prize by 5 for a total win of $500,000. These lucky players bought their tickets in Colorado and Missouri.

Thirty-five 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 $25,000.

More than 74,000 winning Powerball players multiplied their prize by 5 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.

This current jackpot run started with the Wednesday, August 18 drawing. The drawing on Wednesday night was the 11th consecutive draw without being hit.

Players purchased more than 23.5 million tickets between Sunday and Wednesday night.

The lotteries sold more than $2.2 billion in Powerball tickets in FY04. That translates into more than $660 million for worthwhile state projects.

MO Lottery website counts that one winner as 5 winners.

    whatever makes them feel good inside, even though it's misleading the players, and something should be done about it.

    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.
