Did anyone win the $106 million Powerball jackpot on Saturday night? The odds of winning the popular lottery game is roughly 1-in-292 million, but the return on the $2 investment will be life-changing if your ticket matches all six numbers drawn on April 14.
It’s been almost a month since one lucky lottery player won a whopping $456.7 million, with The Philly Voice reporting that the ticket was sold at a Speedway convenience store in Manheim, Pennsylvania. Although Saturday night’s top prize is a lot less than the March 17 half-million-dollar jackpot, it would still be a major windfall for a potential winner.
Tonight’s Powerball drawing takes place at 10:59 p.m. ET. The winning numbers will be posted below after the numbers are confirmed.

How much money will you take home if you win the Powerball jackpot?
Although the jackpot stands at $106 million, you will take home quite a bit less if you match all six numbers. According to the official Powerball website, the cash value of the April 14 jackpot is $63.7 million.
Jackpot winners can choose a lump sum payment or a 30-year annuity. Federal taxes will be withheld before a payment is issued, and, for some, state taxes will be withheld as well.
According to the Washington Post, there are 10 states that do not tax lottery winnings including California, Delaware, Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. In addition, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands do not tax lottery winnings.
Powerball tickets are currently sold at lottery retailers in 44 states; Washington, D.C.; Puerto Rico; and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets are $2 each, with an additional $1 fee for the Power Play option.
