So Close! Local ticket matches 5 numbers in Powerball drawing

So Close! Local ticket matches 5 numbers in Powerball drawing”

The drawings are held at 10:59 p.m.

Saturday night's drawing resulted in 96,127 winning tickets in Tennessee alone, including a $2 million victor in Erin and a $200,000 victor in Memphis. The odds of hitting the jackpot are 1 in 292 million. While there was no jackpot victor in the drawing, IL players won more than 165,000 prizes ranging from $4 to $50,000. And when these sites saw a flood of visitors in early 2016 for the $1.5 billion jackpot, many of them ended up crashing for extended periods of time.

If someone draws the winning numbers plus the Powerball number on Wednesday, he or she could cash out at $443.3 million.

The current jackpot is the second largest in Powerball history and the third largest in North American lottery history. Another ticket that didn't have the Powerball ($50,000) was sold in Kernersville.

A $2 million ticket was also sold in SC. Like all Florida Lottery products, players must be 18 or older to play. During the past year, theLotter has helped create Powerball millionaires in Canada, El Salvador & Australia, and a Moscow chauffeur won almost $1.5 million in the Austria Lotto! The federal government would claim 25 percent of the jackpot (foreigners get taxed 30 percent), which would leave the victor with either a one-time payment of $308.8 million or $16.25 million annually, according to USA Mega, a site that monitors Powerball statistics.

A percentage of the sales from Arkansas lottery tickets goes toward helping fund scholarships for Arkansas students. Since no one claimed the winning ticket Saturday, the jackpot has increased from $535 million. Three winning tickets were purchased in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland.
