Winning numbers for Saturday’s Powerball lottery draw 28-45-53-56-69 And Powerball 20.
Powerball. Cash awaits the winner
I don’t know if anyone has hit such numbers yet. If someone is lucky on Saturday, they will now receive the highest amount in America. In 2016, it brought in $1.586 billion. Then three people had to share.
Saturday’s draw was the 40th since the last jackpot was hit in Pennsylvania on Aug. 3. October 4, 2021 The wait is long. In California, the winner won nearly $700 million in the 41st draw.
– It’s true that it’s night in America, but emotions run high. Millions of people are waiting for the official word on whether someone will finally hit the Powerball lottery and win this huge amount of money – reported TVN24 reporter John Bachlowski.
The journalist pointed out that if the winner of the main prize is not chosen during this void, the jackpot will increase to two billion dollars.
John Bachlowski added that the award, when paid, “will be less than half”. If the winner chooses the one-time payment option, he will clear $782.4 million. However, such high taxes can be avoided. – You can get around this. If the amount is spread over 30 years and the winnings are taken in equal installments these taxes will be less – he explained.
Although the odds of winning were one in 292.2 million, this did not stop the crowd from buying tickets. Especially since the ticket costs $2. – For me, the warnings about the low probability of success are not appealing. I’m 50 percent sure: whether I win or not – calculated Andrew from Queens in an interview with PAP.
– This game delivers exactly what our players want. With a $1.6 billion win, we are witnessing history! “We’ve already had millions of winners, including nearly 100 with prizes of $1 million or more,” said Drew Switko, president of Powerball’s product team and executive director of the Pennsylvania Lottery.
