Powerball Results, Numbers for 12/14/19: Did Anyone Win the $150 Million Jackpot on Saturday (Last) Night?

The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s lottery drawing was $150 million but did anyone claim the top prize?

The winning numbers in the December 14 draw were 3, 6, 12, 32 and 64. The Powerball was 19 with a Power Play of 3x.

There were no jackpot winners, but one ticket holder did match all five white balls to win a $1 million prize. Twelve others matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 prizes and two others had purchased the Power Play feature, so tripled their wins to $150,000.

As nobody claimed the top prize, it rolls over to the next Powerball draw on December 19. The jackpot now stands at $160 million with a cash value of $108.7 million.

The last time the top prize was won was in the November 2 draw, when a ticket in California matched all five balls and the Powerball to win the $150 million jackpot. Last month’s win was the seventh time the Powerball jackpot has been hit this year.

How do you play the Powerball lottery?
