Sunday is a fun day.
But first, the Powerball drawing for Saturday, Aug. 8, may yield a potential winner for a staggering estimated $158 million jackpot. The winner may choose a $130.3 million cash payout instead.
The previous Powerball drawing, for Wednesday, Aug. 5, had winning numbers of 7 – 14 – 17 – 57 – 65, with a red Powerball of 24. The Power Play multiplier was 5x.
One ticket matched all five white balls for a cool payday of $1 million. With the $1 Power Play option, it would have been worth $5 million. Nonetheless, a $1 million prize is nothing to sneeze at.
