Powerball Results for Saturday’s Drawing – Did Anyone Scoop the $130m Jackpot?
Saturday night’s Powerball drawing was for the phenomenal sum of $130m, but did anyone actually manage to scoop that life-changing sum? The winning numbers for December 7th were: 18, 42, 53, 62, 55 with the Powerball being 25. The Power Play was 3x. There’s good news and bad news; the bad being that nobody managed to match all the numbers to win, but the good news is the next jackpot for December 12th stands at $140m.
Nobody managed to win $1m either – that’s all five white balls, but, a total of 11 people did manage to match four of the five white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 each and one person also purchased the Power Play feature which boosted their original winnings of $50K to $150K – the Power Play 3x multiplies the winnings by three times.
The last time all five white numbers and the Powerball were matched was back in November when a lucky ticket holder in California matched the all the numbers to win the $150m jackpot, but as of yet, nobody knows whether the anonymous winner opted for the cash lump sum of $1-4.8m after taxes or the total sum of $150m paid in 30 yearly instalments.
Powerball plays twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays with draws beamed live from the lottery studio in Tallahassee in Florida. Each ticket costs just $2 but there is an option to purchase the Power Play option like our recent winner did, to multiply your winnings (if you’re lucky enough to win). If you can correctly predict five numbers from 1 to 69 as well as a Powerball from 1 to 26, you will be the next big winner.
