Top Ten Powerball Winners, all time: a List


There was no jackpot winner in last night’s Powerball game so Saturday’s jackpot rises to $61 million.

The winning numbers were 8,13,38,39,45 and Power ball 31. The Power Play multiplier was 4. Four winning tickets matched the first five numbers. Those tickets, each worth $200,000, were bought in Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri and Pennsylvania.

I’ve been asked…. what are the top ten jackpots, all time, in Powerball. Since you asked:

1. $365 million, on Feb. 18, 2006 won by a lottery pool in Nebraska
2. $340 million, on Oct. 19, 2005, one ticket won by two families in Oregon
