There were no winners in last night’s Powerball drawing, so the jackpot continues to climb for the next drawing.
The estimated jackpot for Friday’s drawing is $550 million, with a cash value of $277.5 million. That number can change, depending on the number of tickets sold. The winning numbers from Wednesday were:
06 – 08 – 15 – 27 – 42 and the Powerball was 10.
