Powerball Numbers For 09/11/19: Wednesday Jackpot is $50 Million

The Powerball jackpot for 09/11/19 is $50 million. The Wednesday night drawing was held shortly after 11 p.m. and here are the numbers.

First five: 06-17-24-53-57

Powerball: 03

Power Play: 3x

The 09/11/19 jackpot was estimated at $50 million, with a cash option of $35.6 million. The jackpot could have increased if sales further lottery projections, according to officials.

Last week someone purchased a ticket in New York for the jackpot of $80 million, which reset the game to its $40 million starting point last Saturday.

Winning numbers from the 09/07/19 jackpot of $40 million on Saturday were: 11-20-41-42-56

Powerball: 06

Power Play: 2x

There was no grand prize ticket sold last Saturday, but there were four tickets sold that matched all five white balls for the second prize of $1 million, with one of those sold in Florida hitting the Power Play for a $2 million second prize.

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 and one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. 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 $40 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.

Wednesday night we will post the Powerball 09/11/19 drawing payouts and tell if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if so.

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.
