Do you have the winning Powerball numbers in the September 5 drawing? Saturday night’s jackpot is $133 million — match all five numbers and the Powerball and you will become the lottery’s newest multimillionaire.
The winning Powerball numbers for September 5 are: 10, 16, 18, 29, 45 PB 19
Although the last drawing didn’t produce a jackpot winner (17-22-30-46-56 PB 16), over $6 million in non-jackpot prizes were given away. According to the official Powerball website, two lucky lottery players won $1 million each by matching all five white balls (no Powerball) in the September 2 drawing.
Don’t throw your ticket away if you’re not the grand prize winner. There are eight ways to win non-jackpot prizes that range from $4 to $1 million.
Match all five white balls – $1,000,000
Match 4 white balls and the red Powerball — $10,000
Match 4 white balls — $100
Match 3 white balls and the red Powerball — $100
Match 3 white balls — $7
Match 2 white balls and the red Powerball — $7
Match 1 white ball and the red Powerball — $4
Match just the Powerball — $4
Lottery players who spend an extra $1 for the Powerplay option have the opportunity to multiply the amount of their non-jackpot prize by up to five times the amount.
Dreaming of something bigger than a $4 non-jackpot prize? If you win the $133 million jackpot on Saturday night, you will have to choose between a one-time payment based on the cash value of the jackpot ($84.9 million) or a 30-year annuity.
According to USA Mega’s handy Powerball jackpot analysis, the lump-sum payout for the September 5 jackpot would be $63.6 million after federal taxes. Jackpot winners who choose the annuity would receive average annual payments of $3,325,000 after federal taxes.
According to the Tax Foundation, not all states tax lottery winnings, but if the state you live in does, the taxes will be deducted before you get your multimillion dollar check.
Powerball tickets are sold at lottery retailers in 44 states; Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets can be purchased up to an hour before the 10:59 p.m. ET drawings held on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
