The Powerball of this August 8, 2020, has increased to a value of 158 million dollars. The winning numbers are: 2-3-14-40-51
How to play Powerball?
To win the 158 million dollars tonight you have to match the five white balls (in any order) with your numbers and the red Powerball ball.
At the other extreme, if only one cue ball or two white balls match and the Powerball does n’t match, you don’t win anything. You will have to go to work tomorrow.
But there are other ways you can win:
- If five white balls match, in any order, but not the Powerball, then you will get $ 1 million. The odds of this are a little over 1 in 11.6 million.
- If you match four out of five of the white balls and the Powerball, you will win $ 50 thousand. The odds of this are just over 1 in 913,000.
- Profits drop dramatically after this. You have two ways to win $ 100: you have to match four out of five of the white balls or the three white balls and the Powerball.
- Next is your chance to win $ 7. You win $ 7 if you match three of the five white balls or match two white balls and the Powerball.
- For $ 4, that can be used to buy two more Powerball tickets if you wanted. You will get this if a cue ball and the Powerball match OR if only the Powerball match.
