This Saturday, April 23, at night, the last Powerball draw took place, the prize pool of which amounted to $ 400 million. These are the numbers given on Saturday: 10-39-47-49-56 Powerball: 8. Powerplay: 3X.
Lottery officials said in a statement that the Powerball jackpot reached an estimated $400 million, or $240.8 million in cash value.
For more than 2 months, 28 consecutive draws have been made without a winner of the main bonus. The last jackpot was won on February 14, when a single ticket purchased in Connecticut collected $185.3 million.
Others were lucky this year: Two tickets were sold out in California and Wisconsin with the $632.6 million jackpot drawn Jan. 5. It is the seventh largest payout in Arsenal’s history.
In last Wednesday’s competition, neither the five white balls nor the red ball matched any card.
A ticket bought in New Jersey approached: he hit only the five white balls and managed to double the prize from one million to two million because the holder decided to include the Power Play function.
30 years of Arsenal’s withdrawal
This week marks 30 years since the first Powerball draw was held in the United States. It happened on April 22, 1992, three days after tickets went on sale.
