What are the Powerball winning numbers for June 20? That’s the big question asked by ticket holders who are hoping to cash in on Saturday night’s $80 million jackpot. No one matched all six numbers on Wednesday night’s drawing (20, 21, 22, 41, 54 PB 7), so the jackpot continues to rise.
Tonight’s numbers will be drawn at approximately 10:59 p.m. ET — watch the drawing live online on WRAL, or find out if you’re a multi-millionaire by using the free Lottery HUB app for smartphones and tablets. The winning Powerball numbers will also be posted here shortly after the drawing.
UPDATE: The winning Powerball numbers for June 20 are: 9, 10, 16, 20, 57, PB 15
Athough the last drawing on June 17 didn’t produce a jackpot winner, there were more than $3.9 million in non-jackpot prizes given away, including a $1 million prize given away to a lucky ticket holder in California. Non-jackpot prizes range from $4 for matching just the red Powerball, to $1 million for matching the numbers on all five white balls. Tickets are $2 each, but players can multiply the value of their non-jackpot prize as much as five times if they pay an extra $1 for the Powerplay feature.
While you wait for the Powerball numbers to be drawn on Saturday night, check to see if any of the tickets you purchased for previous drawings are non-jackpot prize winners. Many people only check to see if they win the grand prize — why not check to see if you have a little extra cash coming your way?
Here are the Powerball numbers drawn so far in June, not including tonight’s drawing (June 20).

Dreaming about what you will do with $80 million if you win the Powerball jackpot tonight? After taxes, your lump-sum payment won’t be quite as much, so you may want to base your dreams on less than half of that amount. After federal taxes are taken out, your check would be for $36,900,000.
If you live in a state that taxes lottery winnings, the state taxes will be deducted before the check is cut. Residents of California, Delaware, Florida, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming do not have a state tax on lottery winnings.
Winners who live in Puerto Rico do not have to pay any federal tax on lottery winnings, but they are required to pay a special tax of between five and 20 percent of the total jackpot amount.
If you choose a 30-year annuity instead of a one-time payment, count on getting a check for approximately $2 million shortly after you present your ticket at your state’s lottery headquarters. The remaining 29 checks will be issued yearly for the same amount, plus a small cost of living increase.
