Powerball winning numbers for Saturday, August 3

Are you the next millionaire?

Here are the Powerball winning numbers for Saturday, August 3.

3 – 6 – 45 – 66 – 68 and Powerball 13

Power Play was 2x

The jackpot was $102 million with a $66.5 million cash option, according to the Powerball website.

Meanwhile in the Mega Millions, the jackpot rose to $50 million with a cash option of $32.4 million on Friday after no one won the $45 million jackpot on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, anyone hoping to stay under the radar with future winnings is out of luck. In New Jersey, winners are required to be identified. But maybe not for long after a bill was introduced in the NJ State Legislature to allow winners to remain anonymous.

If you’re dreaming of winning the Mega Millions jackpot, you should probably call a lawyer and be ready to tell lots of people no because life is about to get a little hectic.
