$2 million Powerball ticket sold near Houston, jackpot climbs”

There was no $432 million victor in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing but someone in Medford is still a big victor.

The last time someone hit the Powerball jackpot was June 10. It is the largest Mega Million prize in IL lottery history.

Some lucky people across the country are taking home smaller prizes. Another ticket with five numbers, but missing the Powerball number, was sold in Florida. The next drawing is scheduled for Saturday night.

The Powerball jackpot for Saturday's drawing has jumped to over a half-billion dollars. It was sold with the $1 Power Play option, which boosted the prize to $150,000 instead of $50,000 because the multiplier drawn was three.

The last MI player to win the Powerball jackpot was Julie Leach, of Three Rivers.

Mega Millions - $20 million for Friday's drawing, with a cash option of $12.5 million.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.87.

The odds of winning are only one in 292.2 million.

Powerball tickets can be purchased at all Colorado Lottery retailers.

Purchasing the $1 Power Play option allows a victor to increase lower-tier prizes by a factor of 2, 3, 4 or 5, depending on the Power Play number drawn. If you choose the cash, then you get the cash, pay the tax, and can invest what is left over.
