Get your lottery numbers out! The winning numbers that were chosen for tonight are: 05, 25, 30, 58, and 59. The Powerball number was 32.
Powerball officials announced at the time of the telecast that the jackpot previously reported to be $425 million had grown to an estimated $448 million.
Players of the lottery have been in a ticket-buying frenzy, hoping that they would be the one to win the ultra-rich jackpot. The longer a jackpot goes without someone winning, and the higher the potential jackpot grows, the more people want to rush out and buy a ticket.
Despite the odds against you winning as the jackpot grows and more people buy tickets, the potential money you could win is too big of a lure for most players of the lottery to resist plunking down their hard-earned cash to buy a ticket or two.
Due to a recent game change in lotteries, the frequency of huge jackpots has increased. Wednesday’s jackpot was the third largest Powerball jackpot in history. It comes mere months after the biggest one in history — a $590 million pot — was won in Florida.
