Were you lucky last night? The Powerball winning numbers for December 7, 2011 are 3, 14, 20, 39, 40, the Powerball number is 37, and the Power Play number is X 2. There were plenty of Powerball lottery winners in Wednesday's drawing, but unfortunately, there were no jackpot winners. That means you get another chance at winning the whopping $67,000,000 grand prize just in time for the holidays!
Powerball Winners December 7, 2011
Another Powerball drawing came and went without one $1,000,000 Power Play winner either. It seems rather odd that out of 559,268 Powerball winners, three (3) people matched all five white Powerball winning numbers for the second-tier prize, but none of them spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option for $1,000,000!
The December 7th lottery drawing wasn't a complete waste of time for the three (3) winners who won $200,000 however. The Powerball winners purchased their lucky tickets in Delaware, Iowa, and Michigan for the second-tier prize. Had they spent the extra buck on a Power Play ticket, they would be instant millionaires today. Although they're hooting and hollering over their new-found riches, these Powerball winners are probably kicking themselves for not playing the Power Play. Oh well, better luck next time!
There were also twenty (20) third-tier winners that matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, AND the Power Ball number for $10,000 each. Two (2) of those winners did think to purchase Power Play tickets, and had their $10,000 automatically multiplied by last night's Power Play number of 2, for $20,000 each! All in all, there were 559,268 total Powerball winning tickets sold in the December 7th Powerball drawing, ranging from $2 to $200,000. Congrats to all the lottery winners!
