## Do you win anything for 2 numbers in Powerball?

No, you need to match all 5 white balls plus the red Powerball to win the jackpot or any other prize in Powerball. Matching just two or more numbers without the Powerball still does not win you anything.

The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 24. 87.

## Do Powerball numbers ever repeat?

No, Powerball numbers do not ever repeat. Powerball numbers are chosen randomly from two separate drums; one drum contains 69 white balls numbered from 1 to 69, and the other drum contains 26 red balls numbered from 1 to 26.

Each ball is assigned a unique number and is not reused in any future drawings. Additionally, due to the presence of two drums, it is virtually impossible to draw the same combination of numbers twice.

As such, the chances of a winning ticket repeating the same combination of winning numbers is incredibly unlikely.

## Who won the jackpot?

The winner of the jackpot has yet to be announced. The drawing for the jackpot has not yet taken place, so the winner is not yet known. The winner will be determined by a random drawing of entries from a pool of eligible participants.

Once the drawing takes place and the winner is announced, their identity will be made public. Until then, the winner of the jackpot remains a mystery.

## How much do you win if you get 2 numbers in Mega Millions?

If you match just two numbers in the Mega Millions lottery, then you will receive a prize of \$2. This is only if you match the first two of the five numbers drawn, not the Mega Millions number. If you match the first two numbers and the Mega Millions number, then you will receive a \$3 prize.

So, depending on how many numbers you match, you could win anywhere from \$2 to the full jackpot, if you manage to match all five numbers and the Mega Millions number.

## Does 3 numbers win anything on Mega?

No, 3 numbers do not win anything on Mega. Mega is a multi-state lottery game that requires players to select 6 numbers from a range of 1-75 for each drawing. To win any of the jackpot prizes, players must match all 6 of the numbers drawn.

However, depending on the total sales, additional prize levels may be offered for players who match fewer numbers, such as 5, 4, or even 3. Other than these additional levels, 3 numbers do not win any prizes in Mega.

## What happens if you get all 5 numbers but not the Mega Ball?

If you get all 5 numbers but not the Mega Ball, then you will have won the second prize tier in the Mega Millions lottery. This prize tier awards players with a minimum prize of \$1 million regardless of the Mega Millions jackpot amount.

If the Megaplier feature is activated and you match five numbers but not the Mega Ball, then you will win \$2 million. To receive this prize, you will need to claim your winnings in person at a Mega Millions lottery office.

Each individual game is subject to its own rules and stipulations regarding number selections, so it’s recommended to read these carefully before playing.
