One ticket matches $2.04 billion Powerball jackpot numbers

Two Mississippi Lottery players hit $50,000 winning numbers

One ticket sold in California hit all the Powerball® numbers, claiming the $2.04 billion jackpot. The jackpot climbed beyond its earlier estimate to $2.04 billion at the time of the drawing—the world’s largest lottery prize. 

With the drawing placed on hold for nearly 10 hours, the winning numbers were 10-33-41-47-56 with a Powerball of 10. The Power Play multiplier was 2X. 

The drawing was performed at 8:57 a.m. EST Nov. 8 at the Florida Lottery draw studio in Tallahassee. The delay was prompted by one participating lottery needing additional time to process sales and play data in the wake of a ticket buying frenzy generated by a record jackpot.

The estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing is now $20 million, with an estimated cash value of $9.8 million.

Two Mississippi Lottery players won $50,000 by matching four out of five white balls and the Powerball. One winning ticket was purchased from Keith’s Superstore #112 on Highway 90 in Gautier. The second winning ticket was purchased from Bluesky #730 on Battleground Drive in Iuka. Neither player selected the Powerplay option, which was 2. Doing so would have doubled their wins to $100,000.
