Powerball Jackpot Climbs but Texas & California Goof

We always try to double  check our lottery results, and were surprised to see that Texas reported the estimated Poweball cash value option at $13.3 million, when everyone else reports $13.4 million. (We think this was simply a typo).

However, the California Super Lotto Plus was extremely out of alignment. No one had won last night, but the Jackpot remained at $16 million and the cash option fell to $4.4 million.  Trying to help our visitors, we estimated the jackpot to be $17 million and a cash value of $10.8M. Now, we find that California corrected their website and established the Jackpot at $18 million and cash value of $11.4 million. We have updated our site accordingly.

The winning Powerball numbers for Wednesday Aug 04, 2010 were:

19 28 30 37 53 Powerball 36 and Powerplay 4x.

In this drawing, Lottery Power Picks recommended 409 combinations. Of these, we had 11 winners: (7) pb, (2) pb+1w, (1) pb+2w, and (1) 3w, returning $43 back to our players. Our 5 number pool had 814,625 combinations. The first winning other combos were located at:
  • 3-w @ # 402  - LPP Winner
  • 3-w + PB @ # 3,458
  • 4-w @ # 7,368
  • 5-w @ # - na -
There were no PB jackpot winners, so the jackpot grows to $25 million with a cash option of $13.4M and a yield of 3.99%

Note: Based on the results of our Poll , we decided to recommend all Power & Mega balls in every drawing after Octorber 22, 2007. This change will make these lotteries consistent with the International and other "mega" ball based lotteries.
