The US Powerball jackpot is steadily climbing again after it was won two weeks ago by 20 Tennessee workers. Last night’s winning Powerball numbers are in, so let’s take a closer look at how the draw fared.
With no one managing to match all the winning Powerball lottery numbers on Wednesday’s December 7, 2016, and claiming the estimated $67 million, it was down to the second prize tier to see if someone was going to win a substantial prize.
It was only in the third prize tier that we see the first winners appear, with all seven Powerball ticket holders matching four main numbers and the red Power ball to win $ 50,000.00 each.
Saturday’s Powerball draw is now worth a massive $85 million already – so make sure you buy a Powerball ticket online today!
The winning Powerball numbers for Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016, are: 41, 48, 49, 53, 64, plus the Power ball number 20.
It was a full two months’ worth of US Powerball drawings that took place before we saw the last jackpot winners finally bag their massive jackpot prize of $421 million, one of the highest jackpot prizes since the $1.6 billion drawing in January.
For newly registered players on PlayUSALotteries.com, the Powerball game is played by matching all five white balls in any order and one red Power ball number which is the bonus ball. Like any usa lotto game, the odds of winning the jackpot is rather slim, but that’s exactly what makes playing the lottery and winning the top tiered prize so amazing.
Although this Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is tiny when compared with January's record-breaking $1.6 billion jackpot, $85 million is definitely not to be sneezed at. If someone had to call you up right now and tell you that they had just deposited $85 million in your bank account – what would you do? It’s massive amount of money, no matter currency you use.
With this Saturday’s jackpot once again rolling over just under the $100 million mark, online usa lotto players will be making sure that they buy a Powerball online with dreams of winning this fantastic amount in cash.
According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which operates the Powerball game, says about 75 percent of winning tickets are selected when the numbers are automatically selected by a computer. Luckily for our online lottery players here at PlayUSALotteries.com, you too could opt to play the Powerball lottery like this by simply clicking on the Quickpick icon on the Powerball playblock.
Claiming, Safeguarding Winnings
So, what should you do if you win the big Powerball prize? Well, one of the first things you should do is hire an attorney, financial planner or both, since most people don’t exactly know what to do when they suddenly come into so much money. Some lottery winners even go so far as to take their lawyers with them to claim their prize.
With the Powerball lottery, winners will have two choices when they claim their lottery jackpot win. Either the full value paid in 30 instalments over 29 years, or a one-time lump sum that is smaller than the actual total.
