The Powerball jackpot is currently back at $40 million as a ticket in Virginia won the $217 prize in Wednesday’s drawing. The winning ticket was sold in Richmond, and represented the biggest single prize won since the record $588 million prize in Novmeber, which was split between two tickets.

The winning numbers for Wednesday’s drawing were: 5, 27, 36, 38, 41, Powerball: 12.

There was also a $2 million Match 5 Power Play winner in Rhode Island, and winners in Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky and New York for the $1 million Match 5 prize. There were a total of 1,150,522 winners on Wednesday. Non-jackpot prizes amounted to $15,648,360.

    Drives me crazy that I only get one or no numbers every time and the one I get doesn’t pay anything out. So the Powerball pretty much makes me cry every week. :)
