The Powerball jackpot lately is akin to a hot air balloon, rising higher and higher.
For Saturday, June 5, the Powerball jackpot is up to $286 million with a $196.6 million cash value option.
Nationwide, there were three big winners for the last drawing from IN, VA, and WA.
Winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, June 5
There are two weekly Powerball drawings on Wednesdays and Saturdays after 11 p.m. EST. The June 5 winning numbers are available below shortly after the drawing.
Winning numbers: 44 – 52 – 54 – 64 – 69
Three Match 5 winners from IN, VA and WA
While three players from Indiana, Virginia and Washington are walking away with $1 million each, there was no grand prize jackpot winner for the last Powerball drawing on Wednesday, June 2. The previous winning numbers were 6 – 7 – 11 – 66 – 67 with a red Powerball of 19.
Moreover, the Power Play multiplier was 3X. Unfortunately, none of the Match 5 tickets tacked on the $1 Power Play option, which would have boosted the prize to $2 million.
In Pennsylvania, one player won the third-place prize of matching four white balls and the red Powerball. A third-place prize in Powerball wins $50,000.
