The winning POWERBALL numbers for the Wednesday, March 27, 2019, jackpot drawing are:
Power Play: X3
A single ticket sold in Wisconsin matched all six numbers in the Wednesday night Powerball drawing to win the third-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history. Due to strong ticket sales, the jackpot climbed to an estimated $768.4 million at the time of the drawing with a cash option of $477 million.
The Powerball jackpot winning ticket was sold in New Berlin, Wisconsin.
Seven tickets matched all five white balls to win $1 million. The $1 million-winning tickets were sold in Arizona, California (2), Indiana, Missouri, New Jersey and New York.
Two other tickets sold in Kansas and Minnesota matched all five white balls and doubled the prize to $2 million because the tickets included the Power Play option for an additional $1.
The odds of winning the POWERBALL jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338.
All POWERBALL prizes are set payouts, except the jackpot. The jackpot prize will be shared among winners in all POWERBALL states. The jackpot will be paid in 30 annual payments or a one-time cash payment of a reduced amount.
If there is no jackpot winner, the money in the jackpot pool rolls over to the next POWERBALL drawing.
Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m., Eastern Time. Tickets may be purchased until 10:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on the night of the drawing.
