Can you think of a better way to celebrate the 4th of July than with a US Powerball jackpot win? Ha – we can’t either! And the funny thing is, that’s exactly what happened to one very lucky player who managed to correctly guess all the winning numbers for last night’s US Powerball draw. The winning numbers were 3, 6, 14, 18, and 42, and the winning set of numbers was completed by Powerball number 21.
In addition to our lucky Powerball jackpot winner, who has yet to step forward, four more players managed to get all the main numbers right! Two of them won a fabulous prize of $1 million, but the other two chose a better strategic approach by selecting the potentially fantastic Power Play option. The result? These two players now own $2 million!
Yesterday marked the 9th US Powerball jackpot win this year, and a total of 1.258 billion has been distributed in jackpot winnings so far. The current jackpot is the ever-impressive $40 million default jackpot prize, and as this year has shown us, big wins are ranging anywhere from $40 to $564 million!
