The Powerball jackpot resets to $20 million for today’s drawing on Feb. 16, after a single ticket hit the Grand Prize in Monday’s drawing. Read on for the whole story.
Another ticket, sold in MI, narrowly missed the Top Prize matching the first five numbers but not the Powerball. That ticket still wins the second-tier prize of $1 million. Matching those first five numbers will always win a prize of $1 million, no matter what the jackpot is. Adding the Power Play option when buying your ticket would double that prize to $2 million.
The lump sum cash value for today’s jackpot is $13.4 million.

CT Lottery celebrates a big win and a big anniversary
The Top Prize was up to $185.3 million on Monday when a ticket sold in CT matched all six numbers drawn. The major win in Connecticut coincides with that state lottery’s 50th anniversary, which just kicked off on Tuesday. According to a CT Lottery press release, this is the ninth Powerball jackpot to be hit in the state, and ranks as the second-largest lottery prize in CT Lottery’s history. The largest prize ever won was the $254.2 million Powerball jackpot hit in 2011.
The winner has not yet been identified, as the prize must first be claimed and ticket validated. The jackpot has a cash value of $123.9 million before taxes, if the winner chooses to take it all at once.
The winning numbers in the February 14 drawing were 16 – 25 – 27 – 49 – 55. The Powerball number was 17.
Monday marks the second Powerball jackpot win of the year so far. Now offering a third drawing per week, Powerball officials expect to see more winners and higher jackpots this year. The Monday drawings began in August last year.
