Powerball jackpot reaches $448 million, winning numbers drawn!


A $448 million grand prize is on the line in Wednesday night’s Powerball jackpot.

The lump-sum cash option for hitting all six numbers is estimated to be around $271 million.

Basics Plus Market in Chicopee told 22News they’ve been seeing more customers buying Powerball tickets as the jackpot has continued to climb closer to a half-billion dollars.

But, believe it or not, it’s not quite the payout that really makes people purchase tickets. 

“Sometimes they come in because when it’s a big big Powerball, people wait until a certain amount,” said Alexander Holland at the Basics Plus Market. “Like $600 million, that’s when the people really come, but it’s just normal traffic right now.”

The Powerball jackpot winning numbers are: 18-36-45-47-69, with a Powerball of 14.
