The Powerball results are in, and you're probably wondering, "did anyone win the Powerball April 28, 2012?" Yes, and no. The Powerball winning numbers are 31, 39, 40, 57, 58, and the Powerball number is 33. The good news is there was a $1,000,000 ticket sold by the Georgia Lottery Saturday night. Unfortunately, the Georgia Powerball winner neglected to buy a Power Play ticket for an extra dollar which would have instantly increased the prize winnings to $2,000,000.
Along with good news, there's usually some bad news, and sadly enough, no one matched all six winning lottery numbers for the $40,000,000 jackpot. That means the estimated Powerball jackpot amount rolled over to $50,000,000 for the next drawing.
Powerball Lottery Winners April 28, 2012
In addition to the $1,000,000 Georgia Powerball winner, there were also thirteen (13) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. Each winner matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, and the Powerball number for the third-tier prize. Two (2) of those lottery winners purchased Power Play tickets for an extra dollar which automatically multiplied their prize winnings by 4 to $40,000 instead. It definitely pays to play the Power Play!
All together, there are 423,317 Powerball winners ready to claim their prizes. Some of the high-tier winners will probably be waiting for the doors to open at their lottery headquarters office Monday morning! The total prize winnings amounted to $3,811,478, with tickets ranging in size from $4 to $1,000,000.
