Just like that, the Powerball jackpot resets to $20 million for tonight, after a player right here in PA scooped the $206.9 million Top Prize in the previous drawing on Wednesday. That makes the lump sum cash value for Aug. 6 $11.8 million, before taxes.

Check the Powerball winning numbers below after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

PowerBall Winning Numbers for Saturday, August 6, 2022

Winning numbers: 8 – 15 – 46 – 56 – 68

Powerball: 3

Multiplier: 2x

PA Lottery player wins the big one!

Wednesday’s jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Montgomery County at a Sheetz store located on North Center Avenue in New Stanton. That retailer earned a $100,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket. We won’t know who the winner is until they claim their prize and have their ticket validated by the Lottery.

In PA, lottery winners can’t choose to remain anonymous. Certain information such as their first name and the county where they bought the ticket become public record. The PA Lottery says this requirement is in place to show transparency — Pennsylvanians can see that a real person won the prize. Some legal loopholes can help shield winners’ identities, such as forming a trust to claim the prize like the five-member group in PA did when they won the $516 million Mega Millions jackpot last year.

Another PA player on Wednesday hit the third-tier prize by matching four of the five white balls, plus the red Powerball. With the Power Play option on their ticket, that PA Lottery player nabbed a $100,000 prize. Without Power Play, the prize would have been $50,000. The Power Play multiplier drawn was 2.
