Did Anyone Win the Powerball Jackpot on 10/06/21? Numbers and Results

On Monday, a single ticket-holder won the massive prize of $699.8 million, meaning Wednesday's numbers reset the jackpot to $20 million.

This amount pales in comparison, but is still undoubtedly a huge sum to be won by a lucky lottery player.

The first five numbers for the Powerball draw on Wednesday were 01-17-52-58-64, with a Powerball number of 01 and a mega Power Play of 10x.

There were winners in the second and third place categories, though no one was able to use the Power Play to their advantage.

Did Anyone Win Wednesday's Powerball Jackpot?

No one won the big money on Wednesday of $20 million (cash option of $14.2 million), which means it rolls over to Monday's draw.

Monday's draw, therefore, will be for $31 million.

One ticket-holder won the second prize of $1 million, while 10 ticket-holders won the third prize of $50,000.

Sadly, none of the top three prizes were won with a Power Play, meaning there were no multiplications available.

If these ticket-holders had played the Power Play, the second-place winner would have doubled their money, while those with the third prize would have taken home a cool $500,000, multiplying their winnings by 10.

The second prize winner on Wednesday was based in Pennsylvania, while the third-prize ticket-holders were in Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey and Texas.

As is obvious from the money available to win, the Powerball lottery was reset to its COVID-time jackpot of $20 million, rather than its usual $40 million.

This was because, on Monday, one ticket-holder won the enormous amount of $699.8 million, with a cash option of $485.5 million.

That ticket-holder, based in California, was not the only winner, as there were also six tickets for the second-place prize. Of these, one used the Power Play, doubling their money.

The massive prize on Monday is not the biggest-ever Powerball jackpot, as back in January 2016 the Powerball prize stood at $1.586 billion.

As a result, Powerball holds the world record for the largest prize ever awarded in the lottery, and it was the first time the jackpot surpassed $1 billion.

For this jackpot, it was split in three, but Monday's jackpot was the eighth-largest in lottery history, and went to just one player.

Lottery players will be hopeful that, though they may have missed out on the big prize, that this smaller jackpot will continue to roll over for another chance at the mega bucks.

Of course, it is always important to gamble responsibly and never gamble with what you do not have.
