Powerball players are getting lucky every week, but the main prize hasn’t been hit since Aug. 3. That means it continues to grow, hopping to $225 million for tonight’s Saturday drawing, Sept. 17. The lump sum cash value, which is the amount a winner would get if they choose to take the prize in a single payment, is $123 million, before required tax withholding.
On Wednesday, the highest Powerball prize won in PA was $50,000. One ticket matched four of the first five white balls, plus the red Powerball. That’s just one number away from winning it all!
Check tonight’s winning Powerball numbers below after the drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

Winning numbers: 5 – 25 – 36 – 51 – 61
Million dollar winners from last drawing
There were other players who came one number away from winning the jackpot on Wednesday, and a couple of them won $1 million each. Matching all five of the white balls wins the second-tier prize of $1 million. Two tickets, sold in Massachusetts and Maryland, did just that.
In other Powerball news, an unclaimed PA Lottery Powerball ticket that won $100,000 a year ago is set to expire on Tuesday. When a Powerball ticket is sold, the Lottery has a record of what numbers were picked and where it was sold, but there is no way to know who purchased the ticket.
Millions of dollars in prizes go unclaimed every year in PA, mostly made up of small wins on tickets that people don’t bother to cash. Unclaimed prizes are added to the Lottery’s profits, which goes to support benefits and programs for older PA residents.
