Check Your Numbers
Last night’s Powerball® drawing produced two big winners in Mississippi. One lucky player matched four out of five white balls plus the Powerball to win $100,000. Because they paid the extra dollar for the Power Play option, which was 2 Monday, they doubled their initial win of $50,000. The winning ticket was purchased from Hotspot Market on Canal Road in Gulfport.
An additional player matched four out of five white balls plus the Powerball to win $50,000. They purchased their winning ticket from Dandy Dan’s on Highway 11 South in Hattiesburg. This player did not pay the extra dollar for the Power Play option.
Because no one matched all five numbers plus the Powerball last night, the jackpot is now an estimated $835 million with a cash value of $390.4 million for the drawing Wednesday, Sept. 27. This is the fourth largest drawing in the history of the game.
