Powerball Jackpot Grows to $46 Million; Two $1 Million Power Play Prizes Won!

POWERBALL–( EMWNews – March 30, 2008) – Even though the grand prize was not hit Saturday

evening, Powerball generated some huge winners. Two tickets in

Pennsylvania (1), and South Carolina (1) matched all 5 white ball numbers

with the Power Play for an incredible $1 million cash win each! Two other

lucky tickets sold in Indiana (1), and Missouri (1) won $200,000 each by

matching all 5 white ball numbers!

The jackpot for the Wednesday, April 2nd drawing will be $46 million with

the cash option at $23.5 million.

The numbers drawn Saturday evening were 18, 20, 25, 31, 36, and the

Powerball was 7. The Power Play multiplier was 5.

Twenty-four tickets matched 4 white numbers plus the Powerball and won

$10,000. Seven additional tickets of that prize level had the Power Play

and had the prize multiplied by 5 for a $50,000 cash win! A total of

529,737 tickets across the nation won more than $7.2 million in prizes

playing America’s favorite game.

A total of 109,712 winning Powerball tickets multiplied their prize by 5

Saturday. Players were able to do that by purchasing the Power Play option

for $1. With Power Play you multiply your Powerball winnings from 2-5

times, except for the jackpot. At the beginning of each drawing a wheel is

spun to select that night’s multiplier.

Players should carefully check their tickets after every draw. Even if

there are no jackpot winners there are always tens of thousands of winners

at other prize levels.

Players purchased $20,677,578 in Powerball and Power Play tickets between

Thursday and Saturday night.

The lotteries sold $2.5 billion in Powerball tickets in fiscal year 2007.

That translates into over $725 million for worthwhile state projects.

Powerball is now played in 29 states, the District of Columbia, and the

U.S. Virgin Islands.
