Congratulations to all the July 27, 2013 Powerball lottery winners! Saturday’s Powerball winning numbers are 9, 23, 40, 53, 58, and the red Powerball number is 6. The Powerball results produced just under one million winning tickets worth $10,387,478 in total prize money, according to Powerball lottery officials on Saturday, July 27. Are you one of the 999,218 lucky Powerball winners?
Unfortunately for all the hopeful multimillionaires, no one will be taking home the $196 million jackpot check. The good news is the jackpot rolled over and is now worth a humungous $235 million for the next Powerball drawing on July 31!
July 27 Powerball Lottery Winners
Although there were no Powerball jackpot winners, or $2 million Power Play winners either for that matter, there were four (4) Match 5 + 0 winners. The lucky Powerball winners matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, missing only the red Powerball number for the second-tier prize of $1 million.
The July 27 Powerball millionaires purchased their tickets from the Kansas Lottery, North Carolina Lottery, New Jersey Lottery and South Carolina Lottery commissions. Each Powerball lottery winner will receive checks for $1 million each minus state and federal taxes. Had the winners purchased a Power Play ticket for an extra dollar, they would have had their prize winnings instantly doubled from $1 million to $2 million. Better luck next time!
Additionally, there were fourty-eight (48) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each in the July 27 drawing. Four (4) of those Powerball winners purchased Power Play options for an extra dollar and will have their prizes automatically increased to $40,000. Each winner matched four out of five Powerball winning numbers, AND the red Powerball number for the third-tier prize.
The largest Powerball jackpot in lottery history was $590.5 million annuity (cash option of $370.8 million). It was won by one Florida lottery winner on May 18, 2013. See the article Florida Powerball lottery winner Gloria MacKenzie claims massive $590M jackpot for more details.
