Powerball winning numbers pass $180 million mark

The 11th consecutive Powerball lottery drawing without a jackpot winner has left a nice, tidy $185 million prize for some lucky player on Wednesday.

No one matched all six numbers in the Powerball drawing of Nov. 10, so the jackpot has risen to $185 million for the game on Wednesday, Nov. 14. The estimated cash option payout for Wednesday’s drawing is $123.7 million.

Delawareonline.com reported that the winning Powerball numbers for Saturday, November 10 were 32, 42, 50, 54, and 55. The Powerball was 32, and the Power Play multiplier was 32.


According to Lottery Post, four players matched the first five numbers without having the Powerball number to win $1 million, one of them coming from New Jersey. One player from Texas added the Power Play option to double their total to $2 million.

The last Powerball jackpot winner came in the game of Oct. 6, when a couple from Delaware won a $50 million prize, selecting to take the cash option value of about $33.05 million. Powerball’s home page reported that the last Powerball jackpot winners from New Jersey were Joseph and Celeste Tamburello from Tinton Falls, who won a $70 million prize in the March 21 drawing.

Nov. 11 was Veteran’s Day, and a Michigan veteran received an unexpected windfall from a lottery game at the end of October. Lottery Post reported that an Army veteran who had been disabled since 2009 with a back injury used his last four quarters to play Classic 47 Lotto, and took home a jackpot of $1.3 million.

The man’s name, age, and hometown were not released, but he reportedly has four children, and was facing undisclosed family issues. He told the Michigan Lottery, “This is a direct blessing from God.”
