Middletown – The Powerball® jackpot has grown to a $151 million annuity value, or a $95.8 million cash prize, for the Wednesday, Jan. 30, drawing.

The winning Powerball numbers drawn on Saturday, Jan. 26, were: 03-22-26-41-49; Powerball: 18. For that drawing, one Pennsylvania Lottery Powerball ticket matched 4 of 5 numbers and the Power Ball, and purchased Power Play, winning a prize of $40,000. Numerous other players won smaller amounts.

Tickets for the next Powerball drawing will be available until 9:59 p.m. Wednesday evening. The Pennsylvania Lottery advises players to purchase their Powerball tickets early to avoid any last-minute rush and to always play responsibly.

How to play Powerball: Players pay $2 and select five white balls from the first set of 59 numbers plus a single red ball, the Powerball, from a second set of 35 numbers. Players may select their own numbers using a Powerball playslip, or they may opt for computer-selected quick picks. Players must match all five numbers drawn plus the Powerball number to win the jackpot. There also are eight additional ways for players to win a cash prize.

Powerball tickets are sold in 44 participating jurisdictions.
