There were two tickets in the country that hit all five white balls but missed on the red Powerball for the second prize. One of those tickets was sold in Pennsylvania, and it bought the power play for a $2 million payout. The second-prize ticket that didn’t purchase the power play was sold in New Hampshire.
The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338—according to Powerball’s website.
Powerball is a multi-state lottery and one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2.
Saturday night we will post the Powerball 06/08/19 drawing payouts and tell if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if so.
There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.
If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.
