13 people won $50,000 after matching four white balls and the red Powerball, with four of those people having their prize doubled to $100,000 because they had purchased the additional 2x Power Play.

The winning ticket for the $150 million jackpot was purchased in California, while the $1 million prize ticket for matching all five white balls came from Virginia, according to the official Powerball site.

With someone successfully winning $150 million top prize, it means the Powerball jackpot has been reset back down to $40 million, with a cash option of $28 million, for the next draw on Wednesday, November 6.

The last time the Powerball jackpot was won was back on September 21, with a total $80 million prize. The winning numbers were white balls 01-09-22-36-68, plus Powerball 22, and Power Play multiplier 2x.

The winning ticket was purchased by 54-year-old Phillip Chipewa from Suttons Bay, Michigan. "After I bought the tickets, I had put them away in my truck," Chippewa told the Powerball site. "I ran out to take a look at them and I didn't have to look past the first line to see I was the winner. Of course, my wife and son thought I was playing a trick, so my son pulled the numbers up on his phone and read them out loud while Dawn [his wife] and I looked at the ticket together. By the time he was done, we both had tears in our eyes.

"We called a family meeting and told all seven of our kids the good news. There were a lot of emotions in that room because we've always put our family first and it hasn't always been easy, but all of them were so happy for us.

"With seven children and 21 grandchildren, I've always said that I might not have the most money, but I am rich with family. Now, I have all the money I'll ever need and can help my family for generations. That means everything to me."
