Powerball Jackpot Now Up to $150 Million Before Saturday DrawingBy: Sean Patterson - March 8, 2013
The Powerball jackpot continues to grow, with the total now reaching a whopping $150 million. Though there were nine different tickets that won a $1 Million Match 5 prize and one man from Maine won $2 million, no tickets matched Wednesday’s numbers to win the jackpot.
Wednesdays Powerball drawing numbers were 6, 10, 23, 41, and 45. The Powerball was 1. In all, 645,993 people won a total of $15,409,133 off of Wednesday’s drawing.
As expected, the Twitter buzz surrounding the massive jackpot has begun:
MOM BUY A POWERBALL TICKET! $2 is a worthy sacrifice for my potential lifelong happiness. Or my potential large collection of cars, rather.
Powerball back up to 150 mil…. What would u do with that?
I feel like I won the powerball. Number was just called at the DMV.
I had a vivid dream that the Powerball will be 17. So there. You can’t put anything on the Internet that isn’t true. “Uhh.. Bonn Jorr!”
Speaking of quitting my job…Powerball at 150 million…make sure I grab a ticket in the morning…
