One ticket had the five regular numbers picked correctly and is worth $1,000,000. One person who played the Power Play matched the five regular numbers and will win $2,000,000.
Thirteen other tickets are worth $10,000 after matching the Powerball number and four other numbers. Seven people who played Power Play matched the Powerball number and four other numbers and will win $40,000.
The odds of winning Powerball's grand prize jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510.
