The Powerball numbers have been drawn, and one lucky person has won $258 million! HollywoodLife.com has the winning numbers right here! Find out if you’re a millionaire!
Winner winner, chicken dinner! One lucky duckling could be walking away with the Powerball grand prize of $258 million after the numbers were selected on Nov. 12! So what are the numbers?
Drum roll please… The winning numbers are: 8, 17, 20, 27, 52, and the powerball is 24! So are you the winner? If you are, we’re sending a big congrats to you, you millionaire! We are SO jealous! There’s nothing like a huge cash prize to turn your whole day around! The cash prize for the current Powerball will be knocked down to $170.7 million (stupid taxes), but if you ask us, that’s still more than enough! There’s practically nothing you can’t do with all of that cash! And if you didn’t get all of the winning number sequence, don’t get discouraged; partial winners still get a cut of the money. Or there’s always better luck next time!
If no one claims their cash prize, the Powerball will roll over into the next cycle. And what makes that news even better, is that the winning ticket will be worth even more money! That’s basically what happened last time. The multi-state lottery originally shot up from $236.7 million to $258 million over night, after no on came forward to collect the earnings from the Nov. 9 drawing. So if this is the case this time, the next drawing will take place on Nov. 15. The Powerball is being held in 44 states across the United Staes, including New York, Washington DC, Chicago, and California.
In Sept. 2016, a lucky winner in Brookhaven, Georgia won the $246 million lottery. That’s a whole lot of money, but it still doesn’t compare to the whopping Powerball that happened back in Jan. 2016, that was worth $1.5 billion! That number is making us dizzy just thinking about it.
But for all those unlucky folks who didn’t pick right this time around, don’t worry, there will be plenty of opportunities to try again in the future!
