The Powerball numbers for Wednesday, June 29, 2011, are worth an estimated $76,000,000 annuity, or $40,200,000 cash-value before taxes. No one has picked all six Powerball winning numbers since a Massachusetts Powerball winner claimed his $25,600,000 lottery ticket earlier this month.
It took six Powerball drawings to get to Wednesday's $76,000,000 jackpot amount. Every drawing without a jackpot winner increases the amount for the next lucky winner. Will it be you?
Latest June 2011 Powerball Winners
There have already been two Powerball jackpot winners in June 2011. If someone wins tonight's estimated Powerball jackpot of $76,000,000, it will be the third Powerball grand prize win in June 2011.
Get out and buy your tickets early. There are many people who play the same numbers every drawing, then someone forgets to play just one time, and that's when their Powerball numbers come up. So sad.
The first Powerball winner of the month was a group of 20 Costco employees that pooled their money every drawing until they hit the big one. And hit it they did! The Costco groupÂ—also known as "1937 Flatbush Avenue Dodgers LLC" of Long Island, New YorkÂ—won $201,900,000 in the June 1, 2011 Powerball drawing. Seeing as there were 20 winners, they decided to take the cash-value lump-sum of $106,159,636. WOW! What a prize!
Just one week later, on June 8, 2011, Jimmy Freeman of Fall River, MA, matched all six winning Powerball numbers and won $25,6000,000. He took the one-time cash payout of $13,493,470 before Uncle Sam found out he was the latest multi-millionaire.
