Powerball Results and Winners September 10, 2011
Although there were no jackpot winners in the September 10th Powerball drawing, there were a number of sizable prizes won. Sadly, there were no Match 5 + 0 PowerPlay winners for $1,000,000 again. This is becoming a discouraging trend lately. In the past month, there have only been four (4) $1,000,000 PowerPlay winners.
The last drawing on September 7th was an exception with three (3) PowerPlay winners because the jackpot was up to $108,800,000. But as a rule, the PowerPlay has seen few winners. How hard could it be to match five Powerball winning numbers?
However, there were still four (4) Match 5 + 0 winners for $200,000 each in the September 10th drawing. They purchased their winning lottery tickets in Florida, Indiana, South Carolina, and Washington DC. Had these players purchased PowerPlay tickets, they would be instant millionaires. You can bet they'll be buying PowerPlay tickets from now on!
There were also twenty-seven (27) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. Four (4) of those players were wise enough to spend an extra dollar on the PowerPlay option. When multiplied by Saturday's PowerPlay number of 4, their $10,000 prize money automatically became $40,000!
Who Won the Last Powerball Jackpot?
The jackpot was so low for Saturday's drawing because someone in Abingdon, Maryland purchased the winning Powerball ticket last week for $108,800,000! Can you believe the Powerball lottery winner still hasn't come forward to claim the grand prize jackpot yet? That's a lot of money to win, which is probably why the winner is taking his or her time.
Typically, lottery winners consult legal and financial counsel before announcing their good fortune to the world. The Maryland Lottery says that if the Powerball winner takes the one-time cash option of $65,000,000, they can expect to pocket about $43,000,000 after state and local taxes.
When is the Next Powerball Drawing?
The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday, September 14, 2011. The jackpot is an estimated $25,000,000 annuity, or a $15,100,000 one-time cash prize.
