Are you the lottery’s newest multi-millionaire? Check the Powerball winning numbers for April 29 and you could be the $60 million jackpot winner if you match all six numbers.
Of course, there’s a chance you may have to share the money if someone else has the same numbers, but splitting $60 million will still leave you with plenty of money to take a vacation, pay off your bills, and live a comfortable life — especially if you seek the advice of a financial planner.
The winning numbers for April 29 are: 1, 26, 34, 38, 51 and PB 6. It will be several hours before the lottery confirms if a winning ticket was sold.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the last time the jackpot was given away was April 18. A lucky player in Puerto Rico won $50 million, the second time in two months that someone from Puerto Rico has picked the winning numbers.
The USA Today reports, Puerto Rican lottery winners do not pay federal taxes on their winnings. Instead, they pay a 20 percent tax to the island. There were no winners in the April 25 drawing, so the jackpot increased from $50 million to $60 million for tonight’s drawing. If there is no winner tonight, the next drawing on Saturday (May 2) could be for as much as $80 million.
Powerball tickets are sold at lottery retailers in 44 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each and can be purchased up to an hour before the 11 p.m. ET drawing, although some retailers may have an earlier cut off time.
If you are the jackpot winner tonight, you can choose an annuity (yearly payments for 30 years), or a one-time lump sum payment. The lump sum payment for the $60 million jackpot would be approximately $39.9 million before taxes.
If you haven’t checked your tickets for previous drawings, here are the winning numbers for all drawings to date in the month of April. Even if you don’t match all six numbers, you could win a non-jackpot prize. Match five numbers (not the Powerball) and you will get a check for $1 million before taxes. Four matching numbers and the Powerball is worth $10,000.
