Massive Powerball Jackpot WinThursday April 9th 2009
A massive Powerball jackpot win was achieved on Wednesday 8 April, 2009. No winner has yet been named, but we do know that one ticket purchased by a lottery player in the District of Columbia matched all six Powerball numbers to scoop a massive €144 million.
The lottery results for the Powerball game on Wednesday 8 April were 1, 6, 48, 52 and 56, and the Powerball number itself was 9. Now that the $144 million Powerball jackpot has been won, the jackpot has been reset to its minimum value of $20 million. That’s still a heck of a lot of cash, and anyone who wants to stand a chance of winning on Saturday 11 April, 2009, should buy lottery tickets without delay.
For those who haven’t played Powerball before, it’s quite easy. You need to select five main numbers from the range 1 to 59 and one Powerball number from the range 1 to 39. If you match all six numbers you win the jackpot. Buying tickets online means that you can participate in the Powerball lottery even if you don’t live in the USA, and you will also be notified automatically by email if you win!
The odds of landing the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 195,249,054, but there are plenty of consolation prizes available, and the odds of winning any prize at all are a very appealing 1 in 35.
All of us here at alottery offer our congratulations to the lucky Washington DC Powerball player, and we also wish aspiring Powerball jackpot winners the very best of luck in making it happen!
