Florida Lottery Powerball Draw Game

U.S. Winning Powerball Ticket Sold, $970M Mega Millions Drawing Friday

There has been a jackpot winner in the $730 million Powerball, the first to get the top prize in months.

The winning ticket was sold in Maryland, pushing the new jackpot to an estimated $20 million for the next drawing Saturday.

Winning numbers for Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing were: 40-53-60-68-69 and a Powerball of 22.

It was the first time both lottery jackpots topped $700 million. The biggest prize was a $1.58 billion Powerball jackpot won by three people in 2016.

The Powerball jackpot was the fifth-largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever, and it came only a day after nobody won the even-larger Mega Millions prize, which now stands at $970 million.

The prizes listed are for winners who choose an annuity option, paid over 30 years. Most winners opt for cash prizes, which for Mega Millions would be $716.3 million and $546 million for Wednesday’s Powerball. After the Powerball win, the new jackpot has a $15 million cash value.

Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball also is offered in Puerto Rico.
