No one won the jackpot on Saturday, so the pot is growing. In addition, no one walked away with a $2 million and two people, from Texas and New York, got the $1 million prize. There were 721,256 winners total, ranging from $4 up to $1 million.
How do you know if your numbers won? If you match all five white balls in any order and match the red Powerball number, then you’ll win the jackpot. But there are additional ways to win. If you matched some of the numbers and are wanting to know if you won, please read the article at this link.
