The Powerball jackpot has grown to $60 million for the player who has the winning ticket on Saturday, Feb. 22. The one-time cash payout for tonight’s Powerball drawing is $42.5 million.

The winning Powerball numbers are drawn every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. Eastern time, with Powerball results usually posted within five minutes.

In most states, ticket sales end at least one hour before the drawing, but a state may halt sales earlier, such as Illinois, which stops sales three hours before the drawing. In Maryland and New Jersey, ticket sales end at 9:59 p.m.; in Virginia, they close at 10 p.m. Check with your state lottery for the cut-off time.

The winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, Feb. 22, are: 25, 37, 39, 61, 62 and the Powerball of 11.

The largest Powerball jackpot in history was $1.586 billion, which was split by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

A player in South Carolina claimed the $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot on Oct. 23, 2018, game officials said.

To win the Powerball jackpot a player must match all five white balls in any order and the red Powerball number. The odds of picking the correct Powerball grand prize numbers are one in 292,201,338, which doesn’t change even if more players buy tickets when the jackpot is enormous.

You have a better chance of winning the Powerball jackpot if you let the computer select your numbers, according to lottery officials. About 75 percent of winning tickets over the years had numbers picked by a computer.

Powerball Winning Numbers For 2/22/2020 Drawing: $60M Jackpot – Annapolis, MD – Here are the winning Powerball numbers for the $60 million lottery jackpot drawing on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2020.

Powerball Winning Numbers For August 22, Estimated Jackpot Up To $29 Million

For Saturday, Aug. 22, the estimated Powerball jackpot will be $29 million. There is also a cash value or one-time payout of $23.5 million for any potential jackpot winner.

The last drawing on Wednesday, Aug. 19 yielded winning numbers of 13 – 23 – 47 – 55 – 58 and a red Powerball of 23. And in fact, the Power Play multiplier was the maximum of 10x.

About the Powerball $1 Power Play option

As a reminder, the Power Play option is just $1 and it can be very important to increase your winnings. The only exception to where the Power Play multiplier does not affect winnings is if you hit the big jackpot or match all five white balls. In that case, your $1 million prize simply doubles to $2 million.

To clear up some misconceptions about the Power Play option, this separate number is actually drawn before the Powerball drawing. Also, it can only be a 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10.

Then, if you win a prize that is not the big jackpot, your prize multiplies according to the Power Play multiplier selected.

Additionally and most interesting perhaps is that the 10x multiplier is only available when the jackpot is less than $150 million or unless previously announced that it is not available.

With that explanation out of the way, let’s see how the recent 10x multiplier paid out for the last Powerball drawing. One ticket matched all five white balls which would normally yield a $1 million prize. Fortunately for the lucky winner, the Power Play option was selected so the lucky winning ticket in Virginia was actually worth $2 million. Seriously, if that is not reason enough to purchase the $1 Power Play option, then what is?
