If only one person wins, the “lump sum” will be worth $38.1 million, before taxes. No one won the jackpot on Wednesday, so the pot is growing. One person from Georgia matched five on Wednesday and won $1 million. There were a total of 665,297 people who won something, 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.
