Powerball Jackpot Grows To $50 Million
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — No tickets were sold with all six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball draw.
The jackpot climbs to an estimated $50 million for Saturday’s draw.
One ticket matched 5/5 numbers (no Powerball number) in California. That ticket was sold in Hollywood at the Whitley Heights Market in Hollywood (1900 N. Highland Ave.) and is worth $465,539.
There were three other tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, and each are worth $1 million. They were sold in Maryland and Wisconsin. California pays on a parimutuel basis for non-winners.
There was one $2 million Match 5 Power Play winning ticket sold in New York.
The numbers drawn Wednesday were 9, 31, 35, 41, 57 and the Powerball number was 26. The estimated jackpot was $40 million.
The drawing was the first since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold. That jackpot, if you needed reminding, was about $590 million, a new Powerball record.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball starts at $40 million.
