It’s been about a month since a lucky player bagged the last big Powerball jackpot. Players have another chance tonight to make their wildest dreams come true by matching six little numbers. With no jackpot winner in Monday’s drawing, the Grand Prize ratchets up to $135 million for May 25. The cash value of tonight’s prize is $79.2 million before taxes.

You don’t have to match all the numbers to win a prize, or even make some dreams come true. If you match the first five numbers, like a player in Texas did on Monday, you’ll come away with $1 million.

Add Power Play to your ticket for an extra $1 and any prizes other than the jackpot are multiplied by a special multiplier number randomly picked at drawing time.

Check the Powerball winning numbers below, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m.

PA Lottery Fast Play offers a spin on traditional match-style games

Another PA Lottery player hit a Fast Play jackpot on Tuesday. For the uninitiated, Fast Play games work like scratch-offs, except they print on-demand and there’s no need for scratching. While that may or may not appeal to you, there is another feature of Fast Play games that might make them worth another look.

Unlike scratch-offs, which are printed ahead of time with the big winners randomly distributed, Fast Play games print random sets of numbers when you purchase them. This allows Fast Play games to offer progressive jackpots, instead of predetermined top prizes.

A progressive jackpot is one that keeps growing until someone wins it. The winner on Tuesday hit the jackpot on a game called Wow, that costs $5 per ticket and has a starting jackpot of $50,000. The lucky Erie County player won $229,742!
