Pennsylvania and Florida Powerball Winners 8/29/2012

Unfortunately, there were no Powerball jackpot winners in Wednesday night’s drawing for $70,000, and sad to say there weren’t any $2,000,000 Power Play winners either. There were however, two (2) Match 5 + 0 winners that won $1,000,000 each. The winning tickets were sold by the Florida Lottery and Pennsylvania Lottery commissions.

There were also twenty-two (22) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. Each Powerball winner matched four out of five white Powerball winning numbers, and the Powerball number for the second-tier lottery prize. Florida Powerball winners are on a winning streak, because three (3) of the Match 4 + 1 winners purchased their winning tickets from the Florida Lottery as well!

Three (3) of the lucky Match 4 + 1 winners spent an extra dollar on Power Play tickets which increased their prize winnings to $40,000 instead of the standard $10,000 prize. Does it pay to play the Power Play? The $40,000 Powerball winners sure think so!

All together, there are 386,276 Powerball winners holding winning tickets worth a total of $4,703,613 in cash prizes.
