Saturday’s May 28th Powerball drawing didn’t produce any jackpot winners, or any Match 5 + 0 second-tier $1,000,000 PowerPlay winners either. There were however five (5) second-tier winners that matched all five white Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for $200,00 each. The winners were from Florida, Maryland, North Carolina, and Texas.

The May 28th drawing also produced forty-eight (48) additional Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. If these lottery winners spent an extra dollar on the PowerPlay option, their prize winnings would automatically multiply by the PowerPlay number, which just happens to be 4, for $40,000!

Pennsylvania Powerball Winner

In recent lottery news, someone bought a winning Powerball ticket from Giant Food Store, at 3 Doublewoods Road, in Langhorne, Bucks County for the May 21st drawing. The winning lottery ticket matched all five white Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Power Ball for $200,000. Had the Powerball winner spent an extra dollar for the PowerPlay option, the lottery prize money would have instantly been worth $1,000,000.

When is the Next Powerball Drawing?

The next Powerball drawing is Wednesday, June 1, 2011, at 11:00pm ET. The estimated grand prize has risen to an astounding $200,000,000 annuity. What could you do with $200,000,000? You might not have had any luck matching all six Powerball winning numbers tonight, but there’s always next Wednesday’s drawing. Hey, it could be your turn next!
