Powerball Results, Numbers for 7/15/20: Did Anyone Win the $87 Million?

Last night’s Powerball jackpot was $87 million, with a cash option of roughly $70.2 million. But did anyone scoop the grand prize?

The winning numbers for the drawing on Wednesday, July 15, were 27, 47, 61, 62 and 69, with the red Powerball being 4 and a Power Play of 10x.

Alas, there were no tickets that managed to successfully match all those numbers and win the jackpot. However, one lucky winner did purchase a ticket that matched all five white numbers to take home the second biggest prize, $1 million.

There were also five people who matched four of the white balls plus the Powerball to receive a $50,000 payout, with three of those winning tickets multiplying their prize to a whopping $500,000 because they purchased the 10x Power Play.

With nobody winning the top prize, it means the jackpot will once again roll over to the next drawing on Saturday, July 18. The top prize now stands at $97 million, with a case value of roughly $78.3 million. This jackpot could increase if sales further lottery projections, according to officials.

Before Wednesday’s draw, the previous Powerball on July 11 had the winning numbers of 14, 19, 61, 62 and 64, with the Powerball being 4 and a Power Play of 2x. There were no jackpot winners for that draw either, but one ticket purchased in Ohio matched all five white balls to receive a $1 million prize payout. The customer had also purchased the 2x Power Play for an additional $1, which led to the prize being doubled to $2 million.

The last Powerball jackpot to be won was over three months ago on April 8, when a ticket purchased in New Jersey successfully matched all numbers to win a grand prize worth $190 million. The numbers for that drawing were 2, 37, 39, 48, 54 and a Powerball of 5.

How do you play Powerball?

The Powerball, one of the most popular lottery games in the U.S., usually has draws twice a week on a Wednesday and Saturday night, at 10:59 p.m. ED. Each draw is broadcast live from the lottery studio in Tallahassee, Florida.

You can play Powerball in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each ticket costs $2 per play, with payers selecting five numbers from 1 to 69, in addition to one red Powerball number from 1 to 26. In certain circumstances, players can also multiply non-jackpot prizes by using the Power Play option for an additional $1.

Powerball’s official website claims that players have a 1 in 24.9 chance of winning any prize regardless of the number of participants. But the chances of winning the grand prize jackpot are astronomically higher at 1 in 292,201,338, according to the official website.

Winners can choose to either select their prize as an annuity, or for significantly less, a lump-sum payment. The annuity option sees the winner receive 30 annual payments over the space of 29 years, with each payment increasing by five percent until the 30th and final payment.
