Powerball Winning Numbers For Wednesday Worth $215M

Three days after the big game in New Jersey, the Powerball lottery jackpot has moved to the next level, and has obtained “super” status of its own.

There was no top prize winner in the Powerball lottery drawing of February 1, so the next jackpot will be going over the $200 million mark.

According to the game’s web site, the estimated annuity jackpot for the Powerball jackpot drawing on Wednesday, February 5 will be $215 million, with a lump sum value of $124.1 million. Winning Powerball numbers for the drawing of February 1 were 5, 12, 15, 27, and 38, and the Powerball was 7.

The Power Play number was 2, and USA Mega reports that two tickets took advantage of adding that option to win $2 million for matching the first five numbers without having the Powerball. Those tickets were purchased in New York and Ohio. A ticket bought in New Jersey was able to win $1 million, along with tickets from not all that far away, two in Florida, and one in Maryland and Virginia.

Elsewhere, if you’re not happy with the $2 price tag on a Powerball ticket, try this. In Pennsylvania, that state’s lottery is getting awfully ambitious with their games. Lottery Post reported that last week the Pennsylvania Lottery added a $30 scratch-off ticket to its collection of instant games. It is called “Three Million,” and has a top prize of $3 million.

Three Million has prizes of: $30, $35, $40, $50, $75, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $30,000, $300,000 and $3,000,000. The ticket has a "Cash Bonus" area featuring prizes of: $40, $50, $100, $250 and $500. There are 26 chances to win on each ticket.
