CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – People who played Powerball Wednesday night could win up to $300 million.
At the Country Trading Post in Chicopee, owner Carl Roy told 22News ticket sales for a jackpot like this normally pick up by 30-to-40%. No one has won the jackpot in the multi-state lottery game since November 4th. Since then, there have been 16 drawings, including Wednesday nights.
If you’re the only one to pick all six numbers correctly, you can take the $300 million paid out over 20 years, or take a lump sum cash payment of $184 million.
Here are the winning numbers: 12-36-38-54-61 and Powerball 22
