St. Louis (KMOX/AP)–Lottery officials say the winning Powerball jackpot numbers have been drawn, and they are 22-32-37-44-50 and Powerball 34.
The estimated Powerball jackpot was at $325 million, the fourth-largest in the game’s history. Under that amount, a single winner’s cash payout would be nearly $213 million before taxes.
Lottery officials have said they’re unsure what effect the start of the Christmas shopping season will have on ticket sales, which normally pick up in the days before high-dollar drawings.
Recent Powerball winners include an Iowa couple that won a whopping $202 million on Sept. 26. A week later, a Delaware resident picked all six numbers for a $50 million payday.
