The draw on Thursday, 27 February, had the prize pool of $11,565,843 in total. It was distributed across 608,423 people. No one won the jackpot (which is acquired while getting 7 main numbers plus Powerball); this is exactly the same case as seen in the Powerball draws during the past few weeks. But we are happy to announce the player who won $320,536 for having 7 main numbers this week!. The chance to score them exactly was 1 in 7,078,443 - congratulations for having completed this difficult task.
