Powerball winning numbers announced for $348 million jackpot.
Here are Wednesday’s winning numbers:
06-13-19-36-51, Powerball: 18, PowerPlay: 2x
The estimated jackpot is $348 million. The lump sum payment before taxes would be about $207.4 million. If there is no jackpot winner, the amount grows even larger for the next drawing.
The prize amount has grown steadily since the Jan. 6 Powerball drawing. A single winning ticket worth $559.7 million was sold in New Hampshire. The holder of the ticket has since gone to court to preserve her anonymity.
Powerball is held in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
A $2 ticket gives you a one in 292.2 million chance at joining the hall of Powerball champions.
The drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Wednesdays and Saturdays. Deadline to purchase tickets is 9:45 p.m.
