Multiply secondary prizes with US Powerball’s Power Play
No-one managed to match all the winning numbers in Wednesday’s draw, but some got really close. Six players managed to nab the $1 million second place prize. Five of them became $1 million richer by matching all five numbers, and then there was lucky (and oh-so-clever) Mr. X who checked the Power Play feature on his ticket. This smart move doubled his winnings to $2 million. A small extra ‘investment’, double the earnings! These lucky six may have missed the huge US Powerball jackpot, but they’re definitely grinning all the way to the bank!
So what were the magical numbers that managed to elude so many players? All double digits this week: 18, 25, 36, 48, 50 and Powerball number 23. Are any of these your lucky numbers? Whatever yours are, get them ready because you never know what’s going to happen on Saturday.
