Powerball Jackpot Reaches $236 MillionWednesday February 24th 2016
Tonight’s Powerball jackpot has snowballed to reach an estimated $236 million (cash value of $156.3 million) following another rollover after Saturday’s drawing. This amazing total is a result of the top prize being unclaimed for an eleventh straight drawing.
Saturday’s $214,800,000 prize may have gone unclaimed, but the drawing did result in success for six players in the Match 5 prize tier. The lucky ticket holders from California, Connecticut, Georgia, New York, Virginia and Wisconsin all won an incredible prize of $1 million. Including these latest winners, Powerball has lavished 13 players with the same seven figure sum in the past three draws. In the last game, a ticket holder from Oklahoma matched five main numbers and the Power Play number to boost their prize to an incredible $2 million. Visit the Powerball Numbers page to learn more about all the recent drawings.
With the dust finally beginning to settle after the $1.58 billion prize was won on Saturday, January 13th and the claimants from Tennessee and Florida both having been presented with their prizes, excitement may understandably be building once more as Powerball fans dream of winning a life-changing sum of money in tonight’s drawing. However, the billion-dollar prize saga isn’t quite over just yet, with the ticket holder from Chino Hills, California yet to reveal themselves to the nation.
With tonight’s prize pot bulging and at its heftiest since the $1.58 billion dollar prize was on offer, players across the country will be hoping to get their hands on this still astounding amount of cash. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning, tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer across the United States. Who knows, it could be you celebrating a Powerball victory long into the night. Good luck!
