The jackpot in America’s favorite lottery game continues to grow. Even though the grand prize was not awarded Saturday evening, two lucky tickets matched all 5 white numbers with the Power Play and won $1 million cash each!
Three additional tickets matched all 5 white numbers without the Power Play and won $200,000 each. In addition, 664,611 tickets across the nation won a total of $6,975,775 in prizes. Because no one correctly matched all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing the jackpot will grow to an estimated $106 million!
The cash option for the Wednesday, December 23rd drawing will be an estimated $53.1 million.
