Big winner for Powerball Lottery

We’ve been bringing you the news for weeks now of how the Powerball Lottery is growing and growing as no players match all the winning numbers. By last night the jackpot was up to an estimated $252 million and one lucky player matched all the winning numbers and the Powerball. This big winner for the Powerball Lottery has not yet come forward to claim their prize but it is yet just a few hours since the draw.

The lucky Powerball Lottery player is from the Missouri and scooped the entire jackpot and it was much higher than estimated at $258.5 million. We’ll bring you more news about the latest Powerball Lottery winner as it is released but for now we’d just like to say congratulations.

$258 million is a staggering amount of cash for any lottery player, of course taxes will also be deducted from the win and the lucky player has yet to decide whether they will take the win as a lump sum or as annuity payments.

Although just one player scooped the jackpot, there were many smaller division players too so it’s well worth giving your lottery ticket a check. The winning numbers in last night’s Powerball Lottery draw are 11 – 34 – 41 – 49 – 55. Powerball 20.

If you missed out on last night’s Powerball Lottery jackpot then don’t worry as there is still another big lottery jackpot, just ripe for the picking. The Mega Millions Lottery jackpot was not won again on Tuesday evening, pushing Friday’s jackpot up to a massive $166 million!
