Powerball jackpot jumps to $700 million

23 August, 2017, 00:42 | Author: Ora Austin
  • Powerball numbers were drawn for a possibility at 535 million dollars big stake

Additional games and features will launch by end of year.

Wednesday night's POWERBALL drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. ET. If there is a lucky victor, they will get the option to take the entire $650 million jackpot as an annuity paid over 29 years. The state's largest Powerball group win was a $107.5 million cash jackpot shared by 48 transit workers from the Philadelphia area in April 2012.

This massive prize is still less than half the all-time biggest jackpot, the incredible $1.6 billion Powerball that was split among three winners in January 2016. Yearlong, the New Jersey Lottery promotes responsible play through its cooperation with the Council on Compulsive Gambling of NJ and by promoting the helpline 1-800-GAMBLER® phone number on all Lottery marketing and advertising material.

The winning numbers in the drawing were 17-19-39-43-68 and 13 for the Powerball. So you have a much better chance of being struck by lightning twice.

The odds winning any kind of prize at all are a much more reasonable 24 to 1. The jackpot and the Match 5 prize are not multiplied.

Tickets are $2 and can be purchased until 9:50 p.m. Wednesday from Massachusetts Lottery retailers throughout the state.
