Well, it was just a matter of time.
Some lucky winner in Florida won the Powerball drawing on Aug. 12 that had an eye-popping estimated jackpot of $169 million. One ticket was sold that matched all the white ball numbers of 2 – 6 – 18 – 36 – 37 and the Powerball of 21.
Thus, tonight’s Powerball estimated jackpot on Saturday, Aug. 15, resets to $20 million. There’s also a cash-value option of $16.6 million.
