At the last Powerball drawing, which took place on Wed., Dec. 1, the top prize was already up to $268 million. But once again, nobody picked all six numbers correctly. Therefore, the jackpot was rolled over to the next Powerball drawing, taking place Sat., Dec. 4 at 10:59 p.m.
This time, though, an even bigger jackpot is up for grabs. A ticket containing all six winning numbers is now worth a whopping $278 million. Or, if the recipient prefers, a lump sum cash option of $196 million could be taken instead.
Powerball Winning Numbers for Saturday, December 4, 2021
The winning numbers for the Sat., Dec. 4 drawing are posted below following this evening’s drawing:
Winning numbers: 10 – 40 – 45 – 56 – 67
Will tonight’s drawing produce the next Powerball multimillionaire?
Our last article revealed the Nov. 29 drawing results. No one picked either all six winning numbers or the five winning numbers without the Powerball. Therefore, there were no million-dollar or multimillion-dollar winners.
Also in the Dec. 1 drawing, no player won the Powerball jackpot or the second-best prize for correctly picking all five of the other numbers.
But sooner or later, one or more new millionaires or multimillionaires will emerge. It could be as soon as tonight, but, as always, you have to be in it to win it. Each ticket costs $2, or $3 if you select the Powerplay option.

By the way, on Sat. Nov. 27, although no player won the Powerball jackpot, one third-place winner came from Pennsylvania. A player in Lycoming County, PA won $100,000 after matching four of the five white balls and the red Powerball. Luckily for the player, they spent an extra $1 for the Powerplay option. Otherwise, the ticket would have been worth $50,000.
