Against all odds, the US Powerball lottery starting jackpot was won last night! The winning numbers were 7, 19, 23, 50, and 54. The Powerball was 14. No information about who the lucky winner might be has been released true to the time of writing. Two lucky players managed to guess the five main numbers but missed the Powerball, leading one of them to win $1 million. The other ticket owner had selected the Powerplay option, causing their prize to grow to $2 million!
Winning the US Powerball lottery starting jackpot is not a common thing. There has only been one other instance since the introduction of the $40 million starting jackpot in January 2012, and that was in May 2013. The odds for an early win are preciously low – few people participate at the first draw, meaning that less number combinations exist. On the plus side – the winner is most likely to be the sole jackpot winner, and they don’t have to split it with anybody!
