A lot of us might have the day off today for Memorial Day, but the lottery doesn’t take a vacation. It’s a good thing, too, because tonight Powerball offers up a chance at a $157 million jackpot.
Many jackpot winners choose to take their prize in a single payment instead of spreading the payout over 29 years. If you do that, you get the lump sum cash value of the prize. For tonight’s jackpot, that would be $93.2 million before taxes.
On Saturday, there was no top prize Powerball winner, but a couple players hit major prizes. A player in Florida and one in New York both matched the first five white balls drawn to win $1 million each. There are many prizes for matching fewer numbers, so always check your tickets so you don’t miss out on an extra payday.
Check the Powerball winning numbers below, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m.

Progressive jackpots offer some of the biggest PA Lottery prizes
Lately, progressive jackpot prize winners have been making headlines in Pennsylvania. Those jackpots came from draw games like Cash 5 and Match 6, as well as Fast Play games that offer the continually increasing jackpot feature. But, those aren’t the only game types that offer progressive jackpots.
The PA iLottery offers instant-win games that play like animated versions of scratch-offs. But the electronic format allows game designers to add more interesting elements, like progressive jackpots to some games.
For example, the Double Jackpots game features two progressive jackpot prizes in a single game. But for a chance to win them, you have to unlock the bonus game by collecting three gold coin symbols, or three diamond symbols in the main game. The Gold Jackpot starts at $500 and the Diamond Jackpot starts at $10,000.
