The Powerball jackpot is currently at $70 million, as nobody won the jackpot prize on Wednesday. The estimated cash value is $45.4 million.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were: 1, 36, 40, 52, 53, Powerball: 20.
There were no winners for the $2 million Match 5 Power Play prize, but there was one winner in Indiana for the $1 million Match 5 prize.
For Wednesday’s drawing, there were a total of 541,908 winners, winning a total of $4,464,128 in non-jackpot prizes.
Odds of winning the jackpot, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, are 1 in 175,223,510.
The next drawing is on Saturday night.
While it’s nowhere close to the larger end of the pot spectrum, people are talking (and dreaming) on Twitter as usual:
