Powerball Results, Numbers for 9/4/19: Did Anyone Win Wednesday's $80 Million Jackpot?

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot hit $80 million, but did anyone win the grand prize?

The winning numbers were 04, 08, 30, 52, 59 and the Powerball number was 02, with a Power Play multiplier of 10X.

There was good news on Wednesday because the $80 million jackpot was claimed by a single winning ticket in New York, according to the Powerball website.

The winning player matched all five numbers and the Powerball to claim the grand prize.

The one-time lump sum payment for the jackpot would be about $57 million if the winner chooses to receive their prize in that manner.

Another lucky player won $1 million by matching all five numbers.

Six players won $50,000 each by matching four numbers and the Powerball. Two players who also matched four numbers and the Powerball were even luckier because they purchased the multiplier option, which means they won a total of $500,000 each.

The Powerball jackpot now resets to $40 million for the next draw on Saturday, September 7.

How to play Powerball

Powerball is a multi-state lottery game that begins with a jackpot of $40 million, and increases by a minimum of $10 million with each draw until the top prize is won.

Before Wednesday's $80 million jackpot, the last jackpot reached $149 million and was won by a single ticket in New York on August 17, 2019.

Powerball draws take place each Wednesday and Saturday at 10:45 p.m. EST from Tallahassee, Florida.

Powerball is played in 44 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each, but players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to 10 times their value by purchasing the Power Play option for an additional $1.

According to official Powerball statistics, the chances of winning a prize by playing Powerball are 1 in 24.9. The odds of winning the jackpot prize, however, are 1 in 292.2 million.

Powerball has been in existence since 1992 and the largest jackpot ever won was in 2016 when the prize reached $1.586 billion. Winning tickets were sold in California, Florida and Tennessee.

In March of this year, the second-largest Powerball jackpot in history was valued at $768.4 million. The winning ticket was purchased in Wisconsin.

The jackpot was won by Manuel Franco from Milwaukee. Franco opted to claim his prize in a one-time cash payout, which amounted to $477 million. After federal and state taxes, Franco pocketed over $326 million, according to the Powerball website.

After claiming his prize in April, Franco said: "I want to thank those closest to me for all the support they have given me over the years. To win feels something like a dream and I feel like at any moment I might wake up.

"I just can't believe an ordinary guy like me would ever be in this position. As a winner now, I don't plan on playing anymore. But, I will say that the two-dollar ticket you buy is worth the chance to change your life forever. It certainly has changed my life and I look forward to the future."

August 2017 marked the third-highest prize, $758.7 million, with the winning ticket sold in Massachusetts.

The U.S. state with the most Powerball winners is Indiana, which has produced 39 triumphant tickets since 1992. Missouri and Minnesota have also struck lucky, with 31 and 22 winning tickets respectively.
