The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing has climbed to an estimated $70 million with a cash option of $47 million.
The winning numbers were: 14, 22, 26, 55, 63. Powerball 26. Power Play 3X
The jackpot was mostly recently hit on Nov. 2 when a $150 million ticket was sold in California. It was the seventh jackpot-winning Powerball ticket sold across the country this year.
While no one won Wednesday’s $60 million top prize, a second-prize, $1 million ticket matching five numbers but not the Powerball was sold in Maryland. In New Jersey, the biggest win with a single ticket was $200.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were: 23, 26, 27, 28 and 66. The Powerball drawn was 11 with a Power Play of 2X.
The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1. A player who buys a $2 ticket has about a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to match five numbers and win at least $1 million.
Powerball is played on Wednesday and Saturday in 44 states, Washington D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
