For today’s drawing, which is Wednesday, Aug. 5, the Powerball estimated jackpot is now worth an eye-popping $147 million. That equates to $121 million for the one-time cash option.
Last Saturday’s Powerball drawing for Aug. 1 yielded numbers of 6 – 25 – 36 – 43 – 48, with a Powerball of 24. The Power Play multiplier was 3x.
Getting up to speed, playing the Powerball means there are nine ways to win. How much you win depends on how many numbers you match and on the Power Play multiplier. Of course, should you hit the jackpot by matching all six numbers, the Power Play option does not apply.
For Saturday’s drawing, three tickets matched all five white balls, making each ticket worth a cool $1 million.
More PA online lottery jackpot games added
Back in January, it was big news that you could purchase Powerball and Mega Millions tickets online through the PA iLottery. Online tickets offer the same features as if you were to purchase them from a physical lottery retailer. You can either choose your own numbers or take advantage of the Quick Pick feature, where numbers are selected randomly.
The lottery game offerings online continue to grow. For example, Cash4Life and Treasure Hunt tickets are now available online. Pennsylvania Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko said, “We are excited to announce that these two longtime player favorites have now been added to our online lineup of games.”
Recently, a PA Cash4Life ticket bought in Blair County awarded a $1 million cash prize, or $1,000 a week for life.
To try out these new lottery games or purchase tickets to tonight’s Powerball drawing, sign up for a new player account at PA iLottery. Moreover, receive $20 as a welcome in bonus money, plus a matched deposit bonus up to $250.

As a reminder, the PA Lottery benefits older Pennsylvanians. And the 2019-2020 fiscal year marked the ninth consecutive year that the Lottery generated over $1 billion for various state-run senior programs.
