Powerball Numbers For 07/11/20: Saturday Jackpot was worth $79 Million

The Powerball jackpot for 07/11/20 was worth $79 million. The Saturday night drawing has been held, and here are the numbers.

  • First Five: 14-19-61-62-64
  • Powerball: 04
  • Power Play: 2x

Saturday night’s 07/11/20 Powerball jackpot is estimated at $79 million, with a cash option of $63.0 million. The jackpot could increase if sales further lottery projections, according to officials.

The winning numbers on Wednesday (07/08/20) for the $69 million Powerball jackpot were: 03-10-34-36-62 with a Powerball of 05. The Power Play was 10x.

There was no grand prize winner on Wednesday, nor was there a ticket sold that matched all five white balls, and just missing out on the red Powerball, for the game’s second prize of $1 million.

The last winning Powerball ticket was sold on June 10, 2020. Normally, the game would reset to a $40 million minimum, but the current COVID-19 pandemic forced Powerball officials to cut the minimum jackpot in half, which began with the 04/11/20 jackpot.

The previous winning ticket sold was purchased in New Jersey for the 04/08/20 jackpot worth $190 million. The previous grand prize won before that was $70 million in the 02/12/20 drawing with a ticket purchased in Michigan. The grand prize winner before that was on 01/29/20. That ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Bonita Springs, Florida, for the $394 million grand prize, which had a cash option of $274.6 million.

The last grand prize winning ticket before that was sold in California on 11/02/19 for a jackpot of $150 million. The Powerball jackpot rolled over 33 times before the Bonita Springs ticket was purchased on January 29, 2020.

The odds of hitting the grand prize jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338, regardless of the jackpot size—according to Powerball’s website.

Powerball is a multi-state lottery played every Wednesday and Saturday, and one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Powerball jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million with a Power Play. Tickets are $2. You can check the numbers for tonight, or any past winning numbers, on the official Powerball website.

The other multi-state lottery is Mega Millions, which is played on Tuesdays and Fridays. Like Powerball, the jackpot is reset at $20 million after a jackpot is won, and one line of numbers is $2, with a $1 option to multiply their winnings with a Megaplier. Here is the Mega Millions website for more information, or to check any potential past numbers.

There are nine ways to win money during the Powerball. Just getting the powerball with no other numbers pays out $4, and even more if the power play is bought for an extra dollar. The same payout goes for one ball plus the powerball, and $7 is the payout for two correct numbers with the powerball, or three correct numbers and no powerball.

If all five white, numbered balls are chosen but the red powerball is not correct, then the payout is $1 million, with an even higher payout if the power play is chosen.

‘It’s unbelievable.’ $396.9 million Powerball ticket sold in Bonita Springs

A 7-Eleven near the beaches of Bonita Springs has a claim to fame — selling a winning Powerball ticket worth $396.9 million.

“Everybody’s very excited,” franchise owner Nour Obeissy said. “(Regulars) are happy for the store and the Bonita Springs area.”

One lucky person bought the winning ticket at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday night, just a few hours before the drawing, at the 7-Eleven store on Bonita Beach Road. The store is one of the last places to stock up on food and drink before hitting the beaches, drawing in both tourists and regulars.

The lucky numbers were 9-12-15-31-60 and the Powerball was 2, according to a Florida Lottery news release.

The winner, who has yet to come forward, has 180 days to claim the prize and has the option to take a lump sum cash payment of $274 million instead of yearly payments.

In addition to the Florida winner, a $1 million ticket was sold in Ohio and another in Virginia.

Thursday morning was busy at the Bonita Springs convenience store. One customer waved around a Powerball ticket with a smile, claiming he “won the jackpot,” before cashing in his ticket for a $5 prize. Others who stopped by gave a curious look at the posters that declare the location as the seller of the jackpot ticket.

Bonita Springs resident Paul Watson walked out of the convenience store Thursday morning with a coffee and some snacks. He said he lives in a nearby house.
