Fourteen people won $50,000 by matching four numbers and the Power Ball and more than 1,000 players won $100 by matching either four numbers or three numbers and the Power Ball. Nearly 300 of these players doubled their prize to $200 using the Power Play, which was X2 last night.

What happens when you win the lottery?

When a player wins the lottery jackpot, they have the option of claiming the prize as an annuity, which is made up of an initial payment followed by 29 annual graduated payments, or as a cash option which is of a lesser value but paid in a one-off payment.

The deadline for claiming a prize varies by lottery jurisdiction but is typically between 90 days and one year. Players can check numbers from previous drawings on the Power Ball website to see if they have won a prize in the past.

Prizes up to $600 can usually be claimed at an official lottery retailer, but prizes of more than $600 must be collected at a lottery office.
