$150,000,000 Powerball Jackpot Lands in Oregon

We love to hear stories about big winners and today we’re celebrating the $150,000,000 US Powerball jackpot finding a winner last week. On Wednesday night a single ticket holder became the latest big US multi-state winner and the winning ticket was sold in Oregon!

There’s no news yet about the winner as they haven’t come forward to claim and Powerball officials have not released many details. We know the ticket was sold in Salem in Oregon and we know the jackpot was worth $150,400,000. The winning numbers in Wednesday’s draw were 4, 14, 23, 27, 56; Powerball 13, so if you live in the area and haven’t yet checked your tickets it’s probably time to do so right now!

It’s not yet known if the winner is aware of the win, or hasn’t yet checked their tickets but Powerball officials are urging people across the USA to check the results if they haven’t done so already.

In addition to this huge jackpot landing in Oregon, one ticket in Texas also matched a $2,000,000 win but that winner is also yet to come forward to claim. So wherever you are in the US, you should check your Powerball tickets right now so you don’t miss out on the chance of a big prize.

The US Powerball is held in 44 states of America making a big sales pool and is notoriously one of the most difficult lotteries in the world to win the jackpot for. Odds of winning the Powerball top prize are estimated at 1 in 292.2 million. With this big win passed, the jackpot will be reset to $40,000,000 and will now climb again to the next big winner.
