Powerball numbers drawn for $638.8 million jackpot: Did you win?


Usually, three times is the charm but for one lucky lotto winner, all it took was one! Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.


The numbers drawn Saturday night, Feb. 23:

4-6-14-20-32 with a Powerball of 13

Multiplier (2x)

The actual prize was announced at $302.2 million. 

No one matched all six numbers, so the next drawing on Wednesday, Feb. 27, will be worth an estimated $322 million.


Have some big Valentine’s Day debts to pay? 

You could change $2 into a $304 million payday Saturday night, when the Powerball jackpot offers the second-largest payday of any game so far in 2019. A New York player claimed the $437 million Mega Millions jackpot on New Year’s Day.

It’s easy to play: Simply select five white balls between 1 and 69 and then a red Powerball between 1 and 26. Or just ask for a QuickPick ticket. 

It’ll cost you $2 or toss in an extra dollar for the multiplier, giving you as much as 4 times the value of any consolation prize. 

The odds of winning the big prize: 1 in 292,201,338.
