US Powerball Jackpot Continues to Grow
The bad news: No one won the jackpot during the November 25 draw of the US Powerball. The grand prize was worth a whopping $148 million.
The good news: Come Wednesday, November 29, the jackpot will be worth $163 million with a lump sum worth $103 million.
The winning numbers were: 8-13-27-53-54, Powerball: 4, Power Play: 2x.
While no player was lucky enough to win the top prize, many players won secondary prizes instead. For instance, there were three winners—from California, Indiana and Oregon, respectively—of the $1 million prize for matching all five white balls. Unfortunately, none of them opted for the Power Play, which would have netted them $2 million instead. All in all, there were 586,752 winners of at least $4 each.

The winning numbers from the Nov. 18 draw were: 17-28-31-32-39, Powerball: 26
Had they both matched the Powerball number, Sobhi and Jean would have shared the $119 million jackpot. Still, $1 million is not a bad haul all things considered.
