The March 21, 2012 Powerball winning numbers are worth a piddly $70,000,000. Although not close to what the Mega Millions winning numbers are worth, Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is still an impressive amount, and it's one grand prize you won't be turning down if you matched all the correct winning lottery numbers!
All the excitement over this week's huge Mega Millions jackpot seems to have increased interest in Wednesday's Powerball drawing and is causing "lottery fever!" It's only been a few weeks since three Powerball winners won back-to-back jackpot prizes. The Powerball winning spree began February 11th when Rhode Island Powerball winner Louise White won $336,400,000. Two weeks later, a lucky New York Powerball winner matched all six Powerball winning numbers for $70,000,000.
Ten days after that, another Rhode Island Powerball winner won $60,000,000! The last two lottery winners are still MIA and haven't come forward to claim their prizes yet. The Powerball winners are more than likely taking the time to seek wise legal and financial advice before announcing their news to the world! Could you wait that long to claim your millions?
In the meantime, there have been plenty of smaller Powerball prizes awarded. The prize winnings range from $4 to $1,000,000 for standard wagers, and $12 to $2,000,000 for Power Play prizes. Just last Saturday, March 17th, the luck of the Irish was upon one Florida Powerball winner who scored a $1,000,000 prize!
The Powerball results for the Saturday, March 17, 2012 drawing, were 11, 14, 49, 55, 58, and the Powerball number was 30. There were no Powerball jackpot winners for that drawing.
When is Tonight's Powerball Drawing?
The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at 10:59 p.m. ET, and has an estimated jackpot of $70,000,000 annuity, or $41,500,000 cash-value before taxes.

Remember, playing the lottery should be fun, but sometimes too much lottery fun can be addictive and could ruin lives. Please play responsibly, and don't spend more than you're willing to lose.
