This Week in Lottery: Rollovers, a Special Raffle, and More
[h2 display=”Latest US Powerball Results” menu=”Latest US Powerball Results”] The latest US Powerball winning numbers are in: 17-28-31-32-39, Powerball: 28, Power Play: 2x Unfortunately, there were no jackpot winners for the November 18 draw, which offered a $120 million grand prize. This means that, come Wednesday, November 22, the jackpot will now grow to $134 million, with a cash option of $84.2 million. While no one won the grand prize, there were three players who won the $1 million second prize (though none of them activated the Power Play). All in all, there were 595,036 players who won at least $4 each. [h2 display=”No NZ Powerball Winners, But Two Win NZ Lotto” menu=”NZ Powerball Results”] No one won the NZ$35 million New Zealand Powerball jackpot in last Saturday’s draw, which means the prize will rollover to the upcoming November 22 draw. Of course, as always, expect a bigger jackpot—this time to the tune of NZ$38 million! While no one nabbed the Powerball, two players did win the first prize in the main New Zealand Lotto. Each winner will take home NZ$500,000. The winning tickets were purchased at Grey Street Supermarket and Hokitika New World, respectively. The winning numbers were: 31-28-36-11-20-12, Bonus Ball: 34, Powerball: 2 [h2 display=”Mega Millions Jackpot to Roll” menu=”Mega Millions Rolls”] It seems as if last week was a pretty unlucky one for jackpot seekers. Like the US Powerball, there were no grand prize winners in the latest draw of the Mega Millions lottery. This means that, come Tuesday, November 21, the jackpot will now be an estimated $106 million, with a cash option of $66 million. That said, the November 17 draw, which offered a $95 million jackpot, did have other winners. For starters, one player matched 5 numbers with the Megaplier activated, which means he/she just won $4 million, instead of just $1 million. Meanwhile, there were 6 players who win the third-tier prize, while some 220 players won the fourth-tier prize. Here’s a more detailed breakdown:
