Powerball Results, Numbers for 6/13/20: Did Anyone Win the $20 Million Jackpot on Saturday (Last) Night?

The winning numbers in Saturday evening’s drawing of the Powerball were 2, 12, 32, 50 and 65. The Powerball was 5 and the Power Play was X3.

According to the Powerball website, no one has claimed the $20 million jackpot in the June 13 draw, so it will now roll over to the next drawing on June 18. The estimated jackpot then will be $22 million with a cash value of $17.5 million.

Although no-one claimed the top prize, there were some big winners from Saturday night’s draw.

Six players correctly matched four balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 prizes, and another player also had the Power Play feature and tripled their winnings to $150,000.

The Powerball jackpot was reset to $20 million after a player in West Virginia bought a winning ticket worth more than $136 million in the June 3 draw. The jackpot had carried a cash option of $108 million.

According to the Associated Press, the ticket—sold at a convenience store in Hinton—was the only winning ticket in the country to match all six numbers in the June 3 drawing.

Before then, the Powerball jackpot hadn’t been won since the draw on April 9 when a player in New Jersey scooped the $190 million jackpot. They bought the winning ticket at Buy-Rite Liquor in Piscataway.

In January, a woman in Florida scooped the jackpot when it was at $396.9 million.

Sheryll Goedert, 61, is the 13th winner of a Powerball jackpot from the state and chose to receive her winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of around $276.6 million.

How to play the Powerball lottery

The Powerball lottery can be played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. To enter the Powerball lottery, players must purchase a ticket from a licensed lottery retailer. Participants must choose five numbers between one and 69 for the white balls and one number between one and 26 for the red Powerball.

The Powerball drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. ET and the ticket sales cut off around one to two hours before the drawing, depending on the jurisdiction. To watch the Powerball drawing, check on the Powerball website to see which TV stations are showing the drawing in your area.

Powerball jackpot

Many factors determine the advertised Powerball jackpot amount, including game sales and the annuity. Saturday drawings have greater game sales than a Wednesday drawing, for example, and the amount of tickets purchase can vary throughout the year.

The annuity, which funds an annuity prize, can be affected by interest rates, as the higher the interest rates, the higher the advertised Grand Prize.

The difference between the Powerball annuity and cash option is that a jackpot winner can choose to either receive the money as an annuity which is made up of 30 graduated payments increased by 5 percent each year over 29 years or as a lump-sum payment paid out in one go.

The cash value option is the amount of money needed in the jackpot prize pool to fund the estimated jackpot annuity prize.
