Powerball Winners and Results From 05/15/21: Did Anyone Win the $187M Jackpot?

Saturday night's 05/15/21 Powerball jackpot was worth an estimated $187 million with a cash option of $127.8 million.

The winning numbers from last night's (May 15) draw were 4, 10, 37, 39, 69. The Powerball number was 24 and the Power Play was X3.

According to the Powerball website, no-one won the $187 million top prize.

That means the next Powerball drawing on Thursday, May 20, will have an estimated jackpot of $201 million with a cash value of $137.4 million.

But, one lucky ticket holder in Indiana did win $1 million after matching five numbers, without the Powerball.

There were also another 16 winners who picked up $50,000 after matching four numbers as well as the Powerball and another five matched four out of five numbers with the Power Play to scoop up $150,000.

Smaller $100 prizes were won by 337 people who matched four numbers without the Powerplay. Another 863 ticket holders picked up the same amount after matching three numbers along with the power ball.

Again, according to the Powerball website, there were 660,315 winners with a total of $6,878,424 of prizes that were paid out.

Winners have the option to receive their prize as an annuity, paid in 30 graduated payments over 29 years, or as a lump payment. Both advertised prize options are prior to federal and jurisdictional taxes.

How to play Powerball:

Powerball tickets are $2 per play and tickets are sold in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Players choose five numbers from 1 to 69, in addition to one red Powerball number from 1 to 26.

In certain circumstances, players can also multiply non-jackpot prizes by using the Power Play option for an additional $1.

People can watch the results, which are broadcast live each Wednesday and Saturday at 10.59 p.m. ET from the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee. Recordings of the draws can later be viewed on the Powerball website.
