We have been watching both the MegaMillions and PowerBall lotteries boast incredible jackpots over the past few weeks. With many more states opting into both of these games over recent weeks, the roll over jackpots for these lottery games have risen much quicker and evenly than ever before. While the MegaMillions produced a lucky winner for its massive $133 million roll over jackpot back on 5th March, the PowerBall has continued to climb. We do have news today that there is a winner for the PowerBall from the draw on Saturday 13th March.
The winning numbers for the PowerBall draw were 6, 16, 20, 31, 36, the PowerBall was 8 and the Power Play number was 5. The lucky winner of this fabulous jackpot is believed to be a single ticket holder from New Jersey and further details of this lottery win will be released once the winner comes forward to claim their prize. So if you buy lottery tickets for the PowerBall and you live in New Jersey, you may want to check the tickets that you purchased for the draw on 13th March as you could be the lucky winner they are waiting to come forward.
There was also a roll over jackpot winner on the MegaMillions at the weekend scooping a lottery win of $20 million meaning that both the PowerBall and MegaMillions return to their starting jackpots of $20 million and $12 million respectively.
It will be interesting to see that now that both of these lottery games are starting anew together, which one will climb the highest and how well they track each other if they roll over for several weeks as before.
