The Powerball jackpot continues to take off, reaching an estimated $73 million for the March 2 drawing. If a lucky lotto player wins it, they could choose to take the lump sum cash value of $47.3 million in one payment, less withholding.
In the most recent drawing, one player hit a $1 million prize on their ticket purchased at a Wawa store in NJ. To win the $1 million prize, a ticket must match the first five numbers drawn. Keep in mind, you’re choosing five of 69 possible numbers — there are no repeated numbers, and they can come up in any order to make you a winner.
Check the Powerball winning numbers here every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday after the drawings at 11:00 p.m. EST.
