Congratulations to all the July 24, 2013 Powerball lottery winners! Did you win the Powerball too? The Powerball winning numbers are 9, 29, 40, 44, 54, and the red Powerball number is 7, according to Los Angeles Daily News on Thursday, July 25.
There were hundreds of thousands of Powerball winners, 833,828 to be exact, but unfortunately no one matched all six Powerball numbers on July 24 to take home the $166 million jackpot check. The good news is the jackpot rolled over and is now worth a whopping $196 million for the next drawing!
July 24 Powerball Winners
Although there are no Powerball jackpot winners in the July 24 drawing, there was one (1) $2 million Powerball Power Play winner from the Pennsylvania Lottery. There were also five (5) Match 5 + 0 Powerball winners. The $1 million and $2 million Powerball winners matched five out of six Powerball winning numbers, but not the red Powerball number for the second-tier prize.
The $1 million Powerball winners purchased their Powerball winning tickets from the Indiana Lottery, New Jersey Lottery, Tennessee Lottery and two (2) from the Missouri Lottery commissions. Had they spent an extra dollar on the Power Play option like the Pennsylvania Lottery winner did, their prize winnings winnings would have instantly doubled from $1 million to $2 million as well!
Additionally, there were thirty-seven (37) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each in the July 24 drawing. Surprisingly, only one of those Powerball winners bought the Power Play option for an extra dollar, which instantly increased their prize 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 for $590.5 million. One Florida Powerball winner matched all six Powerball winning numbers, including the red Powerball number for the Saturday, May 18 drawing.
