The Powerball drawing for Wednesday night did not result in a grand prize winner for the jackpot, which was worth an estimated $378 million. However, several people were able to snag smaller monetary prizes from the latest drawing.

The winning lottery numbers drawn on Dec. 22 were 7, 16, 19, 48, 68, with a red Powerball of 15. The Power Play was 2X.

Even though no one hit the $378 million jackpot, which had a cash value of $275.9 million, one player was still able to become an instant millionaire.

A player from Arizona matched five numbers, which put their winnings for the night at $1 million. If the player would have hit the Match 5 with a Power Play, it would have resulted in a $2 million prize.

However, that player wasn’t the only one lucky enough to snag a prize. In the latest jackpot drawing, four people hit the Match 4 plus red Powerball with a Power Play winning $100,000,

There were also 13 Match 4 plus red Powerball winners who took home $50,000. Other players won prizes between $4 to $200 from the night.

Since the latest drawing went unclaimed, the jackpot will climb to $400 million with a cash option of $292 million. The next drawing will take place on Saturday night.

The latest drawing comes after a man from North Carolina claimed a $2 million winning ticket from the Monday night jackpot.

Alfie Farlow brought three quick pick tickets from a local convenience store, Sam’s Mart. The first thing Farlow wants to do with his winnings is invest in his two young daughter’s college fund. He also wants to buy a new home and possibly start a trucking business.

The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. The Powerball costs $2 per play.

To become a Powerball jackpot winner, a player must match the six numbers on their ticket to the drawn six-number combination. Five numbers need to be selected from 1 to 69 for the white balls, and a number is selected from 1 to 26 for the red Powerball.
