Powerball 8/9/17 winning numbers, live lottery results for Wednesday’s $307M drawing
A Powerball jackpot worth $307 million was held Wednesday night, and the numbers are: 12, 30, 36, 47, 62 and 9.
The cash option is worth $193.2 million. The drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. and be televised on WABC-7 in New York City and Fox 29 in Philadelphia.
The twice-weekly Powerball jackpot hasn’t been hit since June 10 when Jeff Lindsay of Menifee, Calif. won the $447.8 million prize. It was the 10th-largest U.S. lottery jackpot. The jackpot has been won four times this year after being awarded seven times in 2016.
The last second-prize, $1 million ticket sold in New Jersey was on July 12. A ticket bought at Country Farms on Springfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights matched five numbers but not the Powerball.
In the last drawing Saturday, two tickets sold in New Jersey matched four numbers and the Powerball. A ticket sold at Acme in Ventnor is worth $50,000. Another — purchased at Lopatcong Quickmart on Baltimore Street in Phillipsburg — is worth $100,000 because the winner spent an additional $1 to exercise the Powerplay option.
Powerball tickets, which have been sold in New Jersey since January 2010, cost $2 each. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot are 292,201,338 to 1. Players have roughly a 1 in 11,688,053 chance to win at least $1 million.
Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The Powerball jackpot is currently the smaller of the two large, multi-state drawings. Friday’s Mega Millions drawing will be worth at least $382 million with a cash option of $238 million.
It’s the sixth largest prize in that game’s 15-year history. Four $1 million tickets were sold for Tuesday’s drawing, but none in New Jersey.
