The winner in Puerto Rico has chosen to remain anonymous, and the third winner, who bought the ticket in Texas, has yet to come forward. If you purchased a ticket at the Appletree Food Mart in Princeton, Texas, check to see if you have the ticket that hasn’t been claimed. The Powerball winning numbers from the February 11 drawing: 11, 13, 25, 39, 54, and PB 19.
How much will you take home if you win the $70 million Powerball jackpot on February 25? The jackpot has a $45.8 million cash value before taxes, more than enough to get you a few days (or a lifetime if you invest wisely) out of work, and perhaps a well-deserved vacation.
If you don’t win the Powerball on Wednesday night and you’re still hopeful that you will one day win millions of dollars in the lottery, the current Mega Millions jackpot is $127 million and will be drawn on Friday, February 27.
