Powerball kicks off the new month offering up a jackpot of $148 million for Sept. 3. As always, a jackpot winner can choose to take the cash value of the prize in a single payment instead of the annuity option. The lump sum cash value of tonight’s prize is $83.1 million, before withholding.
On Wednesday, seven different players hit Powerball’s second-tier prize, winning at least $1 million each. Tickets sold in California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York and Virginia matched all five white balls drawn, winning $1 million. Only one player hit that win with the Power Play option on their ticket. That player, in Tennessee came away with $2 million.
Check tonight’s winning Powerball numbers below after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.
