The Powerball jackpot ratchets up to an estimated $133 million for March 16. The lump sum cash value of the prize is $87.8 million.
There has been a sore lack of second-tier winners lately, and the previous drawing was no exception. Monday saw no winners of $1 million or more. There are nine ways to win a prize with Powerball, and the third-highest prize is $50,000. Five lucky players hit that prize on Monday by matching four of the five white balls plus the red Powerball.

Another notable Powerball winner from PA
One player in Allegheny County beat the odds and hit that third-tier win, after buying their Powerball ticket online. The Power Play ticket option came through for that online player, tripling their $50,000 prize to $150,000. Power Play, available in some lottery jurisdictions, costs $1 extra and multiplies all prizes except the jackpot based on the multiplier number drawn. The online player was the only one who managed to triple their third-tier prize on Monday.
The next prize tier, won if you match any four numbers, is quite a smaller prize at $100. The lower tiers will fetch you $7 or $4. With the possibility of a multiplier up to 10x, Power Play might be a wise move when you buy your next ticket.
