In the five weeks since two separate tickets hit the Powerball jackpot on Jan. 5, the Top Prize for the game has grown to an estimated $172 million for Saturday, Feb 12. A jackpot winner in tonight’s drawing has the choice to take the lump sum cash prize of $117.3 million.
Just one lucky player in the previous drawing hit the second-tier win, for a prize of $1 million. The ticket, sold in NC, matched the first five numbers drawn but did not match the final number drawn – the red Powerball.

Recent lottery winners right here at home
The PA state lottery offers other exciting draw games (similar to Powerball), which boast better odds of winning than the Multi-state games. Adding to the fun, drawings for the games are held daily instead of two or three times per week.
One such game with recent big winners is the Pennsylvania Lottery Treasure Hunt game. On Feb. 11 one ticket matched all five numbers drawn, winning the jackpot prize of $130,000. That ticket was sold at a Sheetz store in Allegheny County. More than 41,000 Treasure Hunt tickets won prizes in that drawing.
A similar prize amount was split by two players on the Feb. 3 drawing. Tickets sold in Carbon and Bucks Counties both matched all five numbers drawn. The total Top Prize amount was $127,000. Those winners each received $63,507 before taxes.
Treasure Hunt drawings are held during the day, and ticket sales end at 1:05 p.m. for each day’s drawing. Draw results are posted at palottery.com after 1:35 p.m. Join PA Online Lottery and visit the VIP Players Club to sign up for text or email alerts with the winning numbers for Treasure Hunt and other games.
