After no one was lucky enough to take the $ 550 million the Powerball racked up last night, the pot of this electronic lottery amounted to $ 640 million, as reported on the company’s website.
Now, players will bet with their plays -of up to $ 3 per ticket by a group of six numbers – for the drawing scheduled for next Saturday, January 16.
The numbers that no one managed to hit last night were 4, 19, 23, 25, 49 and 14 for the powerball.
Although there were no millionaire pot winners yesterday, Powerball reported that a Virginia play managed to hit five numbers and the powerball. It took $ 2 million.
There were also several plays that hit five numbers on their tickets and won prizes of $ 1 million. The states in which there were awards were in California, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, New York and Texas.
The $ 640 million jackpot will then be the fifth-largest jackpot in Powerball history and its highest amount in nearly two years.
It was reported that if the person opts for cash money, instead of annuities, this award could represent a value of $ 478.7 after deductions. However, these taxes are different between states.
According to the company, a player has a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning a prize when the advertised jackpot is $ 40 million. You also have a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning a prize when the advertised jackpot is $ 1 billion.
