did anyone win the powerball jackpot last night

Powerball Results, Numbers for 11/25/20: Did Anyone Win the $204 Million?

The winning numbers for the Powerball draw on November 25 were 2, 57, 58, 60 and 65, and the Powerball was 26. The Powerball jackpot was an estimated $204 million, but did anyone win?

Nobody matched all five numbers and the Powerball so nobody won the jackpot. Therefore, the jackpot has rolled over to the next Powerball drawing on Saturday, when it will be worth an estimated $216 million with an estimated cash option of $168.4 million.

In Wednesday night’s draw, nobody matched five numbers so nobody won the $1 million prize.

However, 18 players matched four numbers and the Powerball, which has a prize of $50,000 each. However, three of these winners used the Power Play, which was 2X last night, and won $100,000 each.

The Power Play option can be purchased for an additional $1 per play and can multiply non-jackpot prizes by two, three, four, five, or 10 times. The number is randomly selected just before the drawing.

The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot annuity is $150 million or less, and the Match 5 prize with Power Play is always $2 million.

Last night, more than 280 players won $100 by matching four numbers, and 80 of these players doubled their prize with the Power Play. Additionally, 800 players won $100 by matching three numbers and the Powerball, and more than 170 winners doubled their prize with the Power play.

More than 36,000 players won $7 by matching either three numbers or two numbers and the Powerball. Nearly 10,000 of these players doubled their prizes to $14 using the Power Play.

Finally, more than 477,000 players won $4 in last night’s Powerball drawing by matching either one number and the Powerball, or just the Powerball, and more than 126,000 of these winners doubled their prizes to $8 with the Power Play.

Despite nobody winning $1 million last night, Powerball announced on Wednesday that two tickets purchased in Missouri won $1 million in the October 28 and November 11 drawings.

Mario Yancy, from St Louis, purchased a ticket for the October 28 drawing and matched all five numbers. Yancy told Powerball: “I don’t play very often, I couldn’t believe it. I had the ticket checked in multiple places just to see if it was right. I was pretty excited.”

Then, on November 11, a group of five friends who went in together on Powerball tickets won a $1 million prize, after purchasing the winning ticket in Jefferson City. The prize was split between Patricia Moody and Larry Lueckenhoff, both of Jefferson City, Gary and Mary Kempker of Jamestown, and Richard Wallendorf of Sunrise Beach.

More than half a million players won prizes in last night’s Powerball drawing—but did anyone win the grand prize?
