[h2 display=”No Winners for Latest Powerball Draw” menu=”No Jackpot Wins in Latest Powerball”] During Powerball’s Wednesday evening draw, the following numbers were picked: 22-23-62-63-66, with 24 for the Powerball, and 2 for the Power Play. Unfortunately, no one won the \$95 million jackpot, which means that on the next draw, the jackpot is expected to go beyond the \$100 million mark. While no one won the jackpot—nor the second-tier prize—there were a total of 478,213 winners of at least \$4 each. Meanwhile, in Michigan, four players won \$200 each. Not really comparable to millions of dollars, but it’s certainly better than nothing!

Nevertheless, Woodard was ecstatic—especially because he initially thought he had only won \$50,000. The clerk made a mistake, it seemed. Good thing somebody at his bank pointed out that he had actually won more than that! Woodard plans to use some of the money to pay off bills, while saving the rest.

The estimated jackpot was \$25 million—however, it’s confirmed that no one won the top prize. This means that, the jackpot will roll to \$30 million for this Friday’s draw.

In fact, four players have been confirmed to have won \$5,000 each. The tickets were purchased at:
• Shoprite, Bergen County
• Branchburg All Tire & SRVC Inc, Somerset County
• Leland Liquors & Deli, Union County
• Mountain Variety, Union County
