Go Figure !

One person, gee, what do you think they will do with the money?

If a winner chooses to take the estimated $275 million in annual payments, the prize would be the equivalent of a salary of about $35,256 a day based upon an average, 40 hour a week job. The cash equivalent, or lump sum payment would be approximately $135,700,000.

One of the tickets sold in West Virginia for the Powerball game Saturday night matched all six numbers drawn, which were:

6, 22, 42, 43 and 47. The Powerball was 16 and the Power Play was two.

The Powerball Web site says nearly 2 million other players won prizes totaling more than $12 million.

Tickets that match the first five numbers, but miss the Powerball, win $200,000 each, and there were twelve of those. They were sold in: Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky(2), Louisiana, Minnesota, North Carolina(2), Pennsylvania(3) and Wisconsin.

There were two Power Play Match 5 winners in the states of: Iowa and North Carolina.

The estimated jackpot for Wednesday is 15 million dollars.
